Rachel, that's a beautiful whip. Well done!

Why did she fall? Her mass distorted space-time to produce the effect we know as gravity...

Mr. Robert, thank you, I will tell him!

Scott, thank you very much!

That is one fine moustache, I mean, whip tongue

I love the glacier blue cracker you put on it, it adds a level of depth to the midnight blue on rust that really brings it together.

Andrew, thanks!

Finally stitched the overlay on this whip, I had a snafu that was completely my fault and had to re-cut half of the overlay in saddle tan. Back to work now.  I have the cores done for a very cool set of whips coming up very soon that I’m really excited about.

Yesterday I spotted an albino dalmatian.
It was the least I could do for him.

Rachel, that 'black and tan' job is going to be very stylish indeed!  smile

Rachel, I'm very much looking forward to seeing the finished result of this black & tan whip.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Thank y’all very much, I finally got back to work on this one enough to actually call it progress.

Looks good, Rachel.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Aesthetically, I don't actually like leather whips, but I can appreciate that perfect plaiting (well, except for that tiny tiny twist at the heel tongue) Rachel, I am seriously in awe of your skills.

Practice does not actually make perfect; Perfect practice makes perfect.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Andrew, sharp eye, there most certainly is a small twist which will be entirely under the heel knot or I would have replaited it, again big_smile
Thank you!

Mark, thank you, I certainly appreciate it!

Jyri, Ron, thank y’all very much smile
Another 48 before I can plait on it more...

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

Rachel, when that happens to me, I can usually manipulate it straighter. But like you said it will be hidden by the heel treatment.

It's really looking good.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Rachel McCollough

This looks beautiful! The colour combination and plaiting pattern totally reminds me of a 5ft bullwhip my friend Renate recently bought from Johnny Ögren in Sweden (apparently one of  less than five people in Europe who are really established in doing first class roo hide bullwhips).

Rachel, this is going to be terrific!  smile
