I do like that concho, Craig.

I've lent your Frankenwhip to  friend of mine who is a real beefy fellah and likes to muscle his whips (no matter how many times I tell him not to! hmm) and he does like it. big_smile

Glad to hear it.  That one was definitely heavy.  I still want to eventually make a three belly like that one but around 12'.

If I can't run fast, I'll make slow look impressive.

Re: Arizona whips

That is a beefy whip! It looks great Craig. I always love seeing the pictures of other people’s work here on WB. I agree, that concho is cool and goes well with the color scheme. I really like the heel knot too. Nice work!

Re: Arizona whips

Thank you, Nathan.   The recipient liked it very much.  Now I have to make another for my bosses boss

Craig, I'm very glad to hear the 'whip bug' is being caught further up the ranks!  Ha!  smile

Re: Arizona whips

Robert - indeed!  I think the novelty is the selling point.  How many people can say that their going away gift was a whip?

Re: Arizona whips

Latest whip for departing boss finished.  He went to Alabama so it has the Crimson Tide colors (Crimson, White, and Grey) and he was an Engineer Officer so it has those colors (Scarlet and White) as well.  And finally black and gold for the Army.

I'm going to start on my whip for the raffle this weekend. It's going to be called "The Whip with No Name".

Craig, I'm guessing 5' ?

Yesterday I spotted an albino dalmatian.
It was the least I could do for him.

No.  6'  I pretty much always make 6'.

Just finished the second belly on my donation whip.  Should finish it this weekend.

Re: Arizona whips

Latest whip.  6' Korean Flag bull whip.  I'm really happy with all three knots. The heel knot is also glow in the dark.

Re: Arizona whips

Grrr....photobucket is putting their logo all over the photos and destroying the best parts!

It looks good, Craig, but I always fear getting a white whip dirty.

Why did she fall? Her mass distorted space-time to produce the effect we know as gravity...

Re: Arizona whips

Looking good Craig! How does it crack?

Re: Arizona whips

Scott - me too, that's why I drowned it in scotch guard. It'll probably never get used, but it cracks well.

That looks very nice Craig. I like the heel and the colors.
