Learn to Make a Bullwhip DVD

Learn to Make a Bullwhip DVD

I’m working on finishing up a project I started a couple of months ago while I was travelling in the midwest.  It’s DVD that will teach you how to make a basic beginners bullwhip.  The pattern I’m using is pretty simple, it’s a core, plaited belly and 4 plait overlay.


This DVD assumes you’ve never made a whip before, and takes you step by step through the entire process.  Everything used in it was sourced in one shopping trip to a Tandy Leather Factory and an Ace Hardware.  However you could get the same materials from pretty much any leather shop and hardware store.

The DVD was recorded while I was travelling, so I’m making the whip in hotel rooms.  I did this on purpose because I wanted to come up with a way to make a whip for someone who didn’t have a whip making shop.  Since I was in a hotel room, I couldn’t screw hooks into the walls, so you’ll learn to make a whip…without committing to hanging hooks on the walls in your house!

Currently I’m doing the final editing on the Make a Beginner’s Bullwhip DVD and it is scheduled to ship out on 5/23  . This DVD will  sell for $30, however as a presale special, if you order before midnight on 5/22/16, you will save $10!  That means the Make a Beginner’s Bullwhip DVD is only $20 and I’ll include free shipping!

The DVD is $30 and to order simply click the button below to add it to you cart!

These kits come with all the leather precut and pared along with all the parts of the whip and a DVD that teaches you how to put it together.   I’m thinking of making a similar kit for making a simple 4 plait leather bullwhip.

The number one question people ask me before they buy a Deluxe Beginner’s Bullwhip is what makes it deluxe?  My Deluxe Beginner’s Bullwhip has a plaited belly where my Beginner’s Bullwhip doesn’t.   Here’s a video of the Deluxe Beginner’s Bullwhip Kit:

Alex Green passes…

Alex Green passes…

Alex green is a person that I only knew through reputation and his videos Whip Cracking Made Easy vol 1 & 2 that he was in with Mark Allen.  However based on what I’ve heard of him the whip world (and western arts world) has lost a legend!

Paul Nolan has put up a bunch of unique pictures of Alex on his twitter feed at: http://twitter.com/MidWestWhips

Here’s his obituary from the Province:

Legendary film stuntman and Vancouver resident Alex Green died from liver cancer Tuesday. He was 68.

The Australian-born stunt master was most famous for jumping boats for Bruno Gerussi in The Beachcombers and cracking the whip for Anthony Hopkins in the 1998 film, The Mask of Zorro.

“I always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up: a stunt man in cowboy movies!” Green had written on his biography on the Stunts Canada website. “I lived for the Saturday matinee — three hours of heaven!”

He grew up watching westerns with idols such as Roy Rogers, Gary Cooper, Randolph Scott and Lash Larue — the latter of whom he admired for his whip.

Green would later become internationally renowned for his western gun-spinning and bullwhip-cracking, performing in more than 2,500 shows around the world.

He moved to Vancouver in the 1960s and then took off to Hollywood, where he fell, fought and played with fire in productions such as the Superman films, Death Hunt, First Blood, Shanghai Noon and more.

At career’s end, he had doubled for such Hollywood heavyweights as Jack Lemmon, Omar Sharif, Christopher Plummer and Peter Falk.

In 1970, he helped found Stunts Canada, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

The organization’s current president, James Bamford, remembered visiting Green’s studio in Gastown when he was younger and having Green teach him how to spin a six-gun until his fingers were numb.

“He loved the film industry. He loved cowboys,” said Bamford. “He always kept the attitude of a child, based on his love for film and television.

“He had thousands and thousands of stories that he would whip out for you at any given time on call.”

Green struggled with liver cancer over the past year, Bamford said, and though he and his wife never had children, the stunts community considered him “a godfather to us all.”

A small gathering will be held in Green’s honour this Sunday afternoon from 2 to 4 p.m. in Pitt Meadows.

“You only go through life once. You’ve got to give it your best shot,” Green had written online. “What could be better than being a cowboy in the movies?”

Budget Bullwhip

Budget Bullwhip

Yesterday I did the overlay for another budget bullwhip.  I’ve got enough leather for 2 or three more of these, the I probably won’t be making many more of them until the fall.

I’ve made this budget bullwhip a “Beginners Whip Kit” and it comes with the Whip Cracking Made Easy DVD #1.  It’s listed on my IN STOCK whips page.

My next project (besides finding time to finish that bosal) is to work on  a signal whip.  I made the shot bag a week or two ago but that’s all:
