That 4-plt stock whip is so elegant. Love the belt too.

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

@ Giovanni Celeste:

My greates compliments to your work Sir!!!

The stockwhip looks extremely elegant, I love the roohide belt you have made and the fact that the construction is making it possible to adjust the belt to almost any size within its lenght.
I also like how you carried out the arrow pattern to the end of the nylon whip (with the bright color beeing the dominant color before the fall hitch) - it looks fantastic!!!

All the best
Ben

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

Awesome Gio- how does it feel to do a simple 4 plait (but still fantastic!) working whip after doing highly intricate whips, belts, etc?

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

Tyler, there probably was some snoring involved.
He most definitely could do a 4 plait in his sleep.

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

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

:-) ahh ahh :-)
Thanks so much Tyler and Ron, actually many of my ideas or solutions to solve some problems on whipmaking, appear to me just before sleep, I swear :-) The night is really inspiring.
Re. four plait stock whip it was very exciting to make it for the simple fact that it was for more than 10 years since I was doing.
For some reasons I think that make a 4 plait whip can be a good test about the accuracy of own work.
When you plait with only 4 strands you can't wrong because every slightest inaccuracy or gaps, are immediately visible.
Again thank you so much!!

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

Hi All,
in these last two months I have been busy with the construction of several Raiders whip in different colors, materials and lengths.
Probably some of you will have already seen some of these whips on FB.
But for my WB friends I thought to show a preview of the latest Raiders whip 8ft.
Here below a rich gallery of pics
See you soon

Very good indeed, Gio! (As ever!) I particularly like the 10 foot dark brown whip.

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

I agree Mr Robert, the 10ft dark brown really caught my eye as well. Wow Gio, you have been busy building a beautiful collection.

He died for me, I'll live for him

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

They're beautiful!  Well done Gio, and if I had to pick one and only one as a favorite, the dark brown, but the heel knot on that last one-wow!  That's a fine looking knot!!!

Very well done, Gio!

Inch by inch.

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

Yeah, the dark brown is my favorite too, but I also quite like the contrasting knots on the natural tan one.  Great work as always Gio smile
