Jacka transition…

Jacka transition…

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.
