Today I made some Latigo Whip Falls. They are pretty simple to make (as far as leather projects go). First I use a yard stick to score lines in the side of latigo:
Then I cut out the falls using a desktop lace cutter:
I cut them out by following the scored lines with the blade in the lace cutter and that leaves me with individual strips of leather:
The next step it to cut a slit in the fall. I have a block of cardboard that is duct taped together. I put the blade through the latigo and then pull on the fall keeping the blade stationary:
And then I pare all four corners of the fall:
and that gives me the almost finished latigo whip falls:
All that’s left is to grease them and then they are good to go!
