Whippin’ Up Some Bullwhip Accessories…

It’s been a very busy few weeks for me between performing and making sure orders get shipped out quickly I haven’t had time to update this blog as much as I’d like.  A couple days ago I had a run on crackers and whip holders, so I spent yesterday making them and shipping them out, in addition to all the other plaiting work.

I tend to sell more polypro crackers than nylon, but had to make some nylon crackers for some orders:

And I ended up making a couple of batches of bullwhip belt holders.  I made one batch and they all sold and had to make another!  Here are half of dozen of the bullwhip holder blanks:

And here are some finished bullwhip belt holders:

You still have a few days to order anything IN STOCK (whips, crackers, DVD’s etc) if you want it to arrive by Christmas (for delivery in the USA).  Orders placed by 9 am (pacific time) on 12/20/12 will ship via USPS priority mail and should arrive my 12/25/12.

The 8 foot bullwhip I’m working on has now been plaited to just past the 5 foot mark.  I got the bolster splice in:

It’s turning out well and I should be able to finish the overlay today and attach the fall as well.

Yesterday I cut out and some more falls and got them soaking in grease.  Here they are drying off:

I also realized I was out of bullwhip  holders so I cut out a few more and made them up:

In the past I’ve had a lot of test cracking type videos hosted by Google Video, which is being phased out this month. So I transfered a lot of videos to YouTube.  These are mostly test cracking type videos, but there are some videos of other whip crackers cracking and some whip making videos.
