5 Foot Bullwhip Progress…

5 Foot Bullwhip Progress…

Yesterday I got some work in on the 5 foot 8 plait bullwhip.  I plaited and rolled the plaited kangaroo belly:

Then I attached the bolster and knot foundation:

Here’s the kangaroo skin that the overlay will be cut from:

Here are the 8 plait strands cut out and prepped for plaiting:

This is about halfway though the plaiting process:

Today I’m going to put on the knots an shellac the whip and it should go out in the mail today!
