Topic: One on one Swap: For James

Glad to be a part of this project. I'm really looking forward to seeing the whip James is making for me big_smile

Here are a few pics of what I'm building (these first three are older pics from a previous build but the process remains the same):

This is the start of all my Bulls

Those colors will make the whip really stand out.
The transition looks very nice.
Great job Roger.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Interesting colors.  I'm looking forward to seeing this smile

If you fall, I'll be there.

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Those are really some fantastic colors.  Your transition is very stiff, too.  I recently started using the door knob method as well and I definitely like the results.

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

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Roger that's looking great!  That'll be a lively whip in more ways than one!

Inch by inch.

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Where can I find information on how to start the positing like that? Or at least, what do you call it?

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Sorry Jesse, not sure if that's a typo? Positing?

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Jesse, if you use the search tool just look for "square start".
You should find it I think. smile

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Positing=plaiting I think!

Square start is also in Ron Edward's book How to Make Whips too, I believe.

Inch by inch.

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Jesse - this is Bert's tutorial that I use.  I recommend practicing it a few times before doing it for real.  My first few times I ended up with a gap on the top back side.

Re: One on one Swap: For James

That should indeed say plaiting. I used my phone to type it and suffered the autocorrect failure typical of phone usage. Thanks for hooking me up with the tutorial though.

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Jesse - look at my latest pics in Arizona Whips and you can see how the stands end up off centered left and right when doing the square start.  It will help you plan.

The area in the link is for full members only!

Jonathan lewis has a nice little video tutorial on youtube if you search his name with 'square start'.

Re: One on one Swap: For James

Need to look into the square start myself,  I like the heel knot but I'd love to try a whip without one, it would be super sleek looking.
