I want to start by saying that I feel horribly outclassed here.
My plan is to make a matched pair of whips. One will be a 6' bullwhip and the other will be a 3' snake whip. That way the recipient will have a smaller backup when he or she decides to carry them as weapons (just kidding, Herr Amper).
The colors may not be exactly the same, but they will compliment each other. I'm going to go with more subdued colors this time. Possibly camouflaged. Since I already have a core that I made last week, I'm going to use it, after I strengthen up the transition some more. I really will try to do the best that I possibly can, given my current skills and knowledge. The last one I made came out fairly good after I had re-calculated all of the lengths. I think for this one I'm going to go with a 14 plait overlay instead of 12 to allow for a thicker transition and hopefully reduce stretching. Since I'm taking 10 days off from work starting Friday, I will try to get them both done and shipped within the next two weeks. Unless they turn out unacceptable.
