Thanks Enoch and Gio!

Re: Devin Bauer

Really nice wood work and the plaiting looks very clean!  I especially love the one you did for the whip exchange.

Re: Devin Bauer

Eureka! I've just received my 'Amper Special' from Devin Bauer.   smile 

It's far too wet outside to do much with it today (too wet for me, not the whip!), but I wanted to post this straight away. Desert Ironwood handle, 6.5 foot rust thong. First impression: the weight distribution is as near perfect as can be (at least for me). I'll post more when I get to know it better....

Re: Devin Bauer

Robert is a lucky guy. I highly recommended this whip to him and as far as I know, he's over the moon with it. Which I completely understand...  smile

Re: Devin Bauer

You're welcome Robert, I look forward to your thoughts after getting acquainted with it.

Re: Devin Bauer

I have finally gotten back to some whipmaking, and my latest progress is for a Cup-style Bullwhip.

12" Honey Mesquite handle with a Quarter in the heel, Eagle side per request.

Re: Devin Bauer

Very nice indeed! Your handles are extraordinarily elegant, Devin! I imagine that making them gives you a lot of pleasure.

Re: Devin Bauer

Devin, you make so beautiful wooden handles, I like your work, great job. wink  wink

Best wishes,

Mario

Re: Devin Bauer

Beautiful, Devin!  Now you've done it with the quarter!  I bet you have to do all 50 states before its over.

33

Re: Devin Bauer

Thanks guys!

Robert, turning is the funnest part short of actually cracking them.

Thank you Mario, and you do excellent photography.

Bobbi, it was requested, but it would be technically possible to do all 50 states in whips, the only trouble being finding the right quarters.

Re: Devin Bauer

Beautiful work as usual Devin on the whip and handle. I'm really liking the rustic look of the mesquite.

He died for me, I'll live for him

Re: Devin Bauer

Beautiful work Devin.  I like the color of the Honey Mesquite.  What color are you going to make the Thong?

36

Re: Devin Bauer

Great work Devin!!!! Now it's time to see the thong!!! :-)

Re: Devin Bauer

Thanks guys!
It does a rustic character doesn't it?

Jared, the colors will be chocolate brown with a pair of dark brown.

Re: Devin Bauer

Wow, that's gonna look great on the finished whip. Clean and simple.

Re: Devin Bauer

We all can't wait to  see it. It sounds like it's going to be very beautiful.

Re: Devin Bauer

Lovely work. The detail you went into regarding the finishing of the handle was fascinating. A bit more than 'gave it a bit of rub down with sandpaper and slapped on a coat of varnish', eh? big_smile

Think for yourself, act for everyone.
