Thanks, Erik, I'm hoping the pattern works out right smile

Re: For Jeff :)

Robby I will try!  I certainly feel like a very young Padawan Learner!
Here's where it is:
Note, this is a test plait so it's not tight etc:

Another note: I've tried it every which way I can think of and this seems to be the closest I can get.

12 plait matches.
14 plait on one side matches but on one side does not. 
16 plait matches.

If this is acceptable pattern I will plait and go make a handle as shiny as I possibly can!

Re: For Jeff :)

Rachel, I think that will work out very well.
Let's see what Jeff says.
Good job on your R&D.

It's ok if you disagree with me.

Re: For Jeff :)

Thanks Ron, yes if Jeff says go then we got it goin quick.

Re: For Jeff :)

Rachel, that looks about right.  From a top or bottom perspective it has the "V" shape.  From the sides it is opposing colors.  If this was only 2 colors then the side perspective would match.  Looking good.

Erik,  I would never say no to Finnish treats, except salmiakki.  I've tried it and could never get used to the taste.

Here's wishing you find time for the things you want to do, and for the things you need to do.

Re: For Jeff :)

Good!  It's a go then, I'll have the overlay done pretty quickly and we will go start shining up that handle.   Great!  I will post another pic of when it's rolled so you can see it clearly.

Re: For Jeff :)

A kg pack of Salmiakki it is then big_smile
Just kidding, but seriously I'd be happy to mail you some stuff. I know you'd love some Fazer blue and Geisha bars!

The whip is coming out nicely I'd say!

Re: For Jeff :)

Jeff, I am soooooooooo envious.
That is going to be  a super whip.

Re: For Jeff :)

Here is the overlay from the sides.  You can see the yellow not meeting on one side in 14 plait.  That was the best knowledge I had.  Wish I could've got it to fully match up......

Re: For Jeff :)

Looks good to me, Rachel!

Re: For Jeff :)

You really saw it trough that the plaiting is really straight! Good job, I don't think you have to worry about the 14 plait!

53

Re: For Jeff :)

It's only half of the 14pl. The other side looks good.
That's the display side.
Very good job Rachel.

Re: For Jeff :)

Thank y'all, I look forward to getting that black handle on it and seeing it then.  Handle make shiny, epoxy, wax, and make some TT falls weighted and not.  Then it's cracker time and finding a box.

Re: For Jeff :)

Great!!!!  I'm glad you are alright with it, Jeff!  I'm turned in a bit under the weather tonight but I will hopefully get to work on the handle tomorrow.  I look to have it done and in the mail one day next week, depending on when I get back to town. 
You've waited long enough, I will get her to you as quickly as I can!

Re: For Jeff :)

Both the handle and the thong of the whip that you've made for Mr. Roseborough look fantastic Mrs. McCollough !!!

The fact that you are stepping up to correct the injustice which has been caused by another person shows what a great character you have !!!

All the best

Re: For Jeff :)

Thanks, Ben, I think the handle will look good with the colors of the whip to

Here you go Jeff, I'm putting on the Tung Oil now.  This is close to what it'll look like, though this is still wet.

Re: For Jeff :)

Rachel, beautiful.
Is it painted or stained or natural black?
