Visiting David Morgan…

Visiting David Morgan…

On Monday I went on a little field trip up to visit with the folks at David Morgan and to pick up a kangaroo skin for an 8 foot bullwhip.  I like going up there because I get to chat whip making and I get to dig through their skins and pick out the perfect skin for the project I’m working on.  Here’s a bunch of strand sets for signal whips hanging at David Morgan:

Since I’m making an 8 foot bullwhip I needed a skin that is in the upper 60 to lower 70 decimeter square range.  I picked out this 71 dm2 skin:

I also had to stop at my local Tandy Leather Factory to pick up another side of cow for bolsters and maybe a couple of 4 plait whips.

Now it’s time to start cutting up leather and doing some plaiting!
