Topic: Build thread for dog shelter campaing
Build threads are fun so... Why not?
This is the whip i'm going to donate this year, if it comes out good enough.
I start with 6mm steel rod wich i have grinded with 60grit belt.
Core is attached with glue and binding. As the core consist from 3 thinner paracords and two 550 paracords i have to glue the inner cords to the steel and bind the most outern cord over the steel.
Next i bind the core. As it consist from 5 cords right after the handle it really condenses when bound.
Here is the first belly plaited
Here it is bound. I used closed loop binding all the way past the point where the next belly will end. And when i start to bind i turn the whip back side up.
Second belly plaited. I tryed something different this time. I like 3 bellyed whips but i dont like the thick handle too much. I dont like to start belly from the end of the handle like Nick does so i tought if i could use joke metod.
I plaited well past the point where i wanted to stop plaiting and bound it really tight.
Then i undid the plaiting and arraged the strands and did closed loop binding really tight.
I notised that the handle was oval and and it didnt go away so i undid it and cutted 2 strands off and bound it again.
It does not look much but when i do this same thing on the third belly i think it is going to feel much slimmer
Here it is waiting for binding and next belly.
To be continued..
