Shellac’d Blue Bullwhip

Shellac’d Blue Bullwhip

Here’s the blue bullwhip after a coat of shellac. This whip handled well when I took it out the other day for some test cracking!

I’m making my handles a bit differently than I used to. In the past the handle was visibly thinner than the thong.  Now it’s almost as thick as the thong.  Visually I prefer them being close to the same width.  After making a few like this I think it’s one of the differences between the new indys (Jacka) and the old indy (morgan) is the handle width. Morgan’s have a slightly thinner handle than the Jacka whips. 

Also I’ve finished my Bullwhip Making for the Beginner book and you can get the “pre-release” of it now.  Basically the pre-release has some typos, if you help me find them you save a couple of bucks on the book.  You can order the book by clicking the following link:  http://bullwhips.org/?page_id=144
