Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Giovanni Celeste

This is the place to comment (The Making of"), the "Gallery" is for showcasing the photos.
So, I will have to delete the comments in the "Gallery of"

Please in the future post your comments in this thread and not the "Gallery of" for any maker featured there.

I thank you for your cooperation. smile

Nice Geo.
It reminds me of the Zoro whip.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Giovanni Celeste

Thank you Ron!
I think there is Zorro's whip as many as the movies..
Differently from Indy whip where the whips have a specific design and shape, there isn't a typical Zorro whip.
From the early movement you can see a long black whip sometimes a bull whip, sometime a target Whip and at least a stock whip.
For these reasons, I think that the Zorro whip can be always interpreted by each Whipmaker in different ways.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Giovanni Celeste

Gorgeous work, Gio!

Yeah, that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by...

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Giovanni Celeste

Gio - I love your way of taking pictures. Sometime I think the photos lies and the are some fake about them  - but there are not

32

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Giovanni Celeste

Not my pics and the real objects shooted smile
You can guarantee as owner of my whips smile
Jocking a part Thanks Flamming I understood what you try from say...
I use my mobile for shooting the pics..
I try to photograph the objects in many and different corners to the purpose to give the  maximum number of information in terms of parameters of the object...
For this reason I prefer shooting and posting more pics...
It will be more easy to me taking a singol pics and post it...
In this way I would have a gain in terms of time but I would lost in terms of information...
Anyway way nothing pics can compare the sensation of a real objects in your hands...

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Giovanni Celeste

Beatiful Gio! How you get the handle so much thinner than the thong? Cutting bellyes in a yoge?

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Giovanni Celeste

Thanks Jyri, exatly!
i start with a nail about 7mm wide over a smal core, over the real core, over the first 4 plaited belly with a joke, over the first bolster that starts about at 2cm from the end of the handle.
Over the first bolster there is a 4 plaited belly with a joke, over the second belly there is  the second bolster BUT this time the bolster starts from the butt of the handle.
