Finishing Up Some Projects

Finishing Up Some Projects

I figured I should finish up some projects that I started a long time ago. I’ve got a 4 foot two tone bullwhip where I made the insides and cut out the overlay probably a year ago.

I’m finally getting to work on finishing it. I finished up plaiting the overlay.

No hopefully it won’t sit for another year before I put the knot on it!

Here’s a bullwhip that’s 8 feet long with a 12 plait two tone overlay:

I’ve been working on this bullwhip off and on for a little bit.  It’s an order for a friend of mine that needed it mid-January, so I worked on it in between other projects.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a two tone whip with a plaited pattern.  It was fun to do!

It’s shipping out today, almost a month ahead of schedule!

4.5 Two Tone Bullwhip

4.5 Two Tone Bullwhip

Here’s a 4 1/2 foot bullwhip that I finished making a long time ago, but haven’t listed for sale until now.  I was going to make it as part of a pair of whips, but never got around to making it’s match, so I’m selling it as a single whip.

This bullwhip is normally $325, however I’m offering a Holiday Speical Price on it.  Right now you can get $25 discount on it, so it’s only $300 (with worldwide shipping included!).   To order it visit the IN STOCK whips page.

Order it for delivery in the USA before 12/20/16 and according to the USPS it will arrive by Christmas!

Finished Signal Whips!

I finished the two signal whips that I’ve been working on and they are ready to head out to their new owners.  The first one is 12 plait and all black:

The second one is 12 plait and black with a little bit of red:

Here are the two whips together:

Now that these two whips are finished, I’m currently all caught up on my orders, so my hook currently is empty.  Now is a great time to put in an order if you would like a whip to be delivered by Christmas.

Lace for Bullwhips…

Lace for Bullwhips…

Today I cut out some lace for a pair of bullwhips:

This pair of whips is not for an order, they are a just for fun pair of whips.  I made the internal layers as a pair, so these two sets of overlays could be to single colored whips or a pair of two tone whips.   I need to figure out what I want to do soon!

Two Tone Bullwhip

Two Tone Bullwhip

This bullwhip has been in the works for a very long time and I’ve finally found time to get a bit more work in on it.  It’s one of my fun projects, if it was an order for someone it would have shipped out months ago.

This is a red and black kangaroo bullwhip.  What makes this different is that the handles strands start in one layout (all red going one way and all blacks going the other way), then at the end of the handle the strands end up in a different layout (3 red  / 3 black going one way and 3 red and 3 black going the other way).

I finished the plaiting the other day:

Today I’m working on knots.  Here’s the scored lead sheet:

Hopefully I’ll get a the knots on this whip today!
