The skin before cutting the overlay was 186 grams and the leftover skin after cutting weighed 56 grams. The overlay after I cut it out and pared it is 100 grams. However that 100 grams will probably change as I tweak lengths and widths during the whip making process.
There was 30 grams of waste from cutting the overlay and a total of 81 grams of waste total so far for the whole whip.
Hope fully I’ll have some time to work on this whip today and I have plans to try to crank out some of my Deluxe Beginners Bullwhips this week as well…we’ll see if I have time…
