Over the weekend I had several more orders for Make Your Own Stock Whip Kits come in. Those all have been made and shipped out. Every time I sit down to cut them out I realize how cheaply I sell them for and sometime soon the price on them will go up!
I also had an order for a mini-bullwhip come in. This one is 30 inches long and 4 plait in black kangaroo:
These are always fun to make! It’s a project that’s a little bit different from what I normally do. The mini bullwhip’s handle diameter is larger than a pencil, but smaller than a sharpie marker. I think proportionally it looks great!
Yesterday I had an order come in for a Make Your Own Stock Whip Kit. This kit takes you step by step into making a stock whip and comes with all the precut leather to do that as well as a DVD that takes you through the braiding and how to assemble everything.
This kit is designed for someone who wants to try to learn how to make a whip without all the trial and error that will go into your first whip. Now most people in the USA want to make a bullwhip, so why don’t I make a bullwhip kit? Well the simple answer is that a stock whip is much easier to make than an bullwhip and is a great gateway to a more complex project like a bullwhip. However once you have basic plaiting skills and are ready to try a harder project I do offer an ebook I wrote called Bullwhip Making for the Beginner.
Since I was out of these Make Your Own Stock Whip Kits when the order came in I cut out several of these sets and have a couple of the kits ready to go. If you’ve thought about trying to make a whip now’s a good time to try.
Right now the 8 foot two tone bullwhip’s overlay is about halfway finished.
I should finish up this bullwhip today or tomorrow and have it in the mail to it’s new owner by the end of the week!
Make Your Own Stock Whip Kit SALE!
It’s time for me to cut out some more of the Make Your Own Stock Whip Kits. While I’m cutting out a couple of them it’s not that much more work to make an extra one or two if I’m already working on them. So right now if you order a Make Your Own Stock Whip Kit you will get a $10 discount.
This discount is only good until I finish cutting up the leather to make a few kits to have on hand. Once I’m done I’ll end the sale and you’ll have to pay full price.
Recently I put together a Stock Whip Kit that comes with precut leather so that a beginner can make their own stock whip. I really haven’t promoted it yet, and have already sold a bunch of them! This provides you with all the materials you need to make your own stock whip along with a DVD that teaches you how to plait it and put it all together!
I’ve got these in stock and for sale at $70 plus shipping. However I’m out of town from 1/28/12 to 2/8/12, so if you order during that time you’ll have to wait until 2/9/12 for me to ship it. Because you’ll have to wait for me to get home before I can ship I’m going to knock 15% off of the Stock Whip Kits while I’m away! That means you can get your own Stock Whip Kit for only $59.50 plus shipping. This is a killer deal and only lasts until I get back home on 2/8/12 after that they go back up to $70.
