Hotel Bullwhip Making…

Hotel Bullwhip Making…

Here’s how I figured out how to make a bullwhip in a hotel room with out making holes in the walls.  I hung the set to be pared in the door jam of the bathroom.

It was pretty simple, I just wrapped the end around a pen:

and shut it in the door.  Here’s the view from inside the bathroom:

And here’s the mess that paring makes on the floor:

I’m kinda amazed that this simple system anchors the leather so well!

  1. If you take a piece of cord, knot it it and shut it in the top of any door, you can then loop your whip to the chord and plait. You can change the length of the chord as you progress. You can clamp it or tie it off and come back later. Unfortunately not my idea but from Rhet who makes cow whips. Orlando Duke

    1. I played with doing that. At home I use a two point anchor, so there are two laces that holds the whip. Each piece hangs off its own hook, one on each side of the whip. A one point anchored piece of lace tends to wiggle a lot when plaiting. The yoke through the door gives me a feel similar to what I use at home.
