  Donation Prizes / photos and descriptions

Post by Ron May »

For the donations here's where you can post photos and a description of the item you are donating to the 2017 WB Dog Shelter Campaign.
Good clear photos in natural light with a overall description of the item.

You can then use the link to this page to post with your announcement to what ever social website you want to post it to so those interested can see what the prizes are.

I think it would be wise to wait until all or at least most donations can be listed, photographed and posted here before announcing the raffle outside of WB.

If anyone has any questions, suggestions, or ideas please PM me so as not to clutter up this thread with anything other than donations, photos and the description.

Do not reply to this thread with anything but donation photos and the description of the item being donated. Anything else will be deleted so that only donations show up here.
Thanks,

Ron

Well, after much thought and consideration I have a whip to donate to the dog shelter. I have up for auction an 7"8' Whiskey American Bullwhip from Mike Murphy. I bought it second hand years ago. I have always cracked it on grass. I just have not been able to give it the proper attention and care it deserves. It currently needs a good cleaning and the fall is still long but a bit ragged. I am unsure what the handle foundation is, the bolsters are cowhide, and the bellies and overlay are kangaroo. It still has life in it and the transition is still solid, but less solid than I care for. The whip itself is very solid and shows the care that Mike put into all his whips. if I can get the time I will give it a good cleaning, greasing, and maybe a new coat of shellac to really make it shine.

Good luck everyone! May this whip find a good home and a loving owner.

Ladies and gents, I present to you the Model 1971 "Salty Dog." It's a firefighter inspired 7 foot nylon bullwhip with a 14" fiberglass handle, nylon core, 4 plait, 8 plait, and 12 plait bellies, ending in a 16 plait split handle and thong overlay. The model number is a reference to NFPA 1971, the national standard for firefighting turnout gear. Therefore, it reflects some of those requirements. The thong is gold mixed with 2 safety green stripes, and 1 retroreflective stripe in-between. On turnouts, the florescent trim is for daytime visibility, and the retroreflective trim for night operations. I wasn't pleased with any of that tracer paracord having a skinny little reflective thread, so I went to recreate the effect myself. Last, but not least, the handle features an avulsion cutaway revealing the hand-engraved brass ferrule underneath. A maltese cross, the symbol of the Fire Service, is on one side, and on the opposite is the number. The brass remains bare to represent the sliding poles found in older, multi-story fire stations.

I would like to donate this whip I've made earlier. It's barely used at all. It's a 12 plait, 4 foot bullwhip:

Image

It's very light and fast - almost like a pocket whip!

Since Photobucket let us down, I'm posting some new photos of the whip I'm donating as a prize:

It's a 5-foot snakewhip (maker unknown - possibly the late Larry Robinson). It's made of leather - I don't know what kind of leather, but I don't think it's kangaroo. I showed this whip to David Morgan about fifteen years ago, who looked at it with his usual critical eye. Then he cracked it. 'Well, it works,' he observed dryly. True enough.

I think it could be much improved by someone used to working with leather. For one thing, the shot loading goes too far down the thong. Where that stops, the thong just flops. The leather fall is too wide and too flat. It really should be replaced. But - the whip does indeed crack. Someone might enjoy just playing with it, or (even better) rebuilding the end of the thong and replacing the fall as an interesting project.

To start this off, I would like to say how important it is to me that these dogs get the help they deserve. All dogs deserve a chance at a happy life in a loving home. I have rescued two of my three dogs from shelters, and not only did I save them, but they've saved me. I was in a dark place in my life before they came in, and I have received nothing but love from the two of them. I decided to help these pups while paying homage to my rescues.

Up for donation from Quartermaster Whips is a 10 foot, single belly bullwhip in black and tan. Towards the heel of the whip is a third layer of plaiting in silver. This serves to thicken the handle, making it more comfortable. At the transition point is a hand-cut and stitched leather ferrule in white. These colors serve to mirror the colors of my pups. I designed this whip to have a similar action to a stockwhip, while at the same time, keeping the fixed transition of a bullwhip. This particular whip cracks very easily, having enough weight to be almost effortless, while remaining light it doesn't feel as though it will pull itself out of your hand.

Also, a huge shoutout to Rachel McCollough of Wolf Creek Whips for helping me to wax this whip.

Below are piicture of the whip that is up for raffle:
