My current project is making some progress. I’m trying to make a bullwhip with a handle to thong transition like Jacka does. Here are some pictures of how I made the transition:
Here are some of the bullwhips guts:
Here’s the first belly after plaiting it:
Then I bound the transition out about 4 inches. I used a wider, but flat artifical sinew:
Every layer I bound it a bit farther up the thong, so by the end the bullwhip was bound about 10 inches into the thong:
I’m about 1/2 way through plaiting the overlay in this bullwhip. It hopefully will get done by monday, but we’ll see.
