Re: My whip journey so far :)
Nice job. It looks like it will crack well.
Is the handle bare wood? It might age nicely and darken with hand oils for an antique patina.
Ron the initial test in the garden got some good cracks
Yes just bare wood, the handle was actually covered in paint splashes so I gave it a sand down to clean it up, wasn't too fussed beyond that as it was a test whip that I will be keeping for myself.
