Also, its not this thread. Its the one we are supposed to post pictures of our donations in. That one won't open correctly.

I don't know what to tell you but what I have already.
It opens fine with my phone or desktop.
You might check your settings restrictions or something like that.

Re: The Donations

Annnd finally fixed the waxing issue! Took ages with a hairdryer but the fall is now flake free ^_^
Also, the secret's out, Jessie tongue The heel knot has a 3D printed WB logo, hopefully that is visible in the image!~

The whip is a 7ft 20 plait snakewhip (2 bellies), has a diameter of approx 1 inch at the handle! Also has a twisted taper fall and english eye ^_^

Re: The Donations

Also I'm not sure I can post this onto the donations thread, so I'll post here.
Here's a video of me testing the whip! ^_^

Re: The Donations

It seems to behave nicely Brandon! That heel knot looks really good! What knot that is?

Re: The Donations

Thank you Jyri! It's a pretty damn big heel knot, so it's a 1 pass of a 10B11L Turks head with a pineapple knot interweave smile

Re: The Donations

Brandon, that looks great! The WB logo is a very nice touch!

I'll give it a try, Dad, but it's going to be really hard...kind of like trying to saw something in half using a banana.

Re: The Donations

Thank you Scott! ^_^ When I heard about the shelter campaign, I knew I wanted to do that logo~

Re: The Donations

Very nice Sparky and yes, that is a huge heel knot. Why did you decide to go so big?

Re: The Donations

Thanks Sir Roger! Well, the original snakewhip I first made was the one with a super thick core, making the overlay a 20 plait with 2 bellies of 12 and 16 plait. I loved it, so I made it for the donation as well, and the heel knot kinda just....grew with that, because a chunky whip deserves a chunky-ish heel knot! ^_^

Re: The Donations

I have the overlay about 2/3 done on my donation. I keep going back over it to correct twisting and such, so it is taking a little while. I am hoping to get some pictures before the weekend.

Re: The Donations

Jesse, good luck with your build. It sounds like it's coming along the right way.
The recipient will appreciate that a lot.

Re: The Donations

With a little luck I will finish my donation whip this week. Decided to try another little "Gator Tail" whip.

He died for me, I'll live for him

Re: The Donations

OK, after a lot of soul searching, I have decided to withdraw Scrappy from the raffle. Since waxing it's lost all stiffness from the handle area and now the heel knot has loosened and I think it's the foundation at fault. It does crack but takes some work and is just not up to any kind of standard for a raffle prize.

I will now be donating one of my earlier whips, a 7' 6" Bullwhip in Burgundy and Black, the one with vertical cord running up and down the handle. I'll sort a pic for here later on and get some more arty shots asap. It needs a good clean and a new cracker but is a fair whip with a good roll out and cracks with ease.

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

Re: The Donations

My whip went out to Rachel to be waxed. She got it yesterday, waxed it, and sent it back. I'll post pictures as soon as it gets back to me.

Re: The Donations

Sir Roger, that must be frustrsting but you're doing the right thing.  And as long as you learn something that helps you improve, it wasn't a waste!

Re: The Donations

Post is up in the official donation thread. I am donating a ten foot whip built with cord in the colors of my pups.
