  1. Hello friends I am starting to learn braiding. I would like to ask if anyone know the name of the braiding or how it is done this nice leather bracelet that I saw in a website. thanks for your help
  2. Does anyone know what type of stitch was used on this wallet. It's fitted very tightly together without gaps. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Bull Rope

    Hey all, first time posting on here but you folks seem like the kind of crowd who would know. My question is about bull ropes, i.e., how to make one. I've seen a few youtube clips and it seems pretty straight forward but the handle lacing is never shown. I'm not out to start a business or compete with anyone who sells them, I just want to make one for myself and not break the bank doing it. So... if any one out there would be kind enough to post a set of instructions I'd be thrilled. Thanks, K.M.
  4. I bought these boots on ebay to make boot purses out of the tops. I sent them to a friend of mine to cut the tops off. When I got them I realized they FIT me and it was too late to make them full length boots again, so I came up with this last night so I can wear them. The one that's finished looks really good in person. Pics just don't do it justice. Comments welcome. Cheryl
  5. A friend has an old lead that got chewed and asked me to repair it. It is not one I've made. Any suggestions for repairing? I can figure out back braiding each end together, but how do I shorten up the core without causing a knot under the braid? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, Barb

    Lace Width

    I'm having trouble figuring out how thick to make my roo lace for making both turksheads and standard plaiting around a core. I've been able to make do so far by just stepping up the turkshead until it fills up the space provided for the knot, however this is only good when I don't care about consistency between knots. I would like to be able to just measure the diameter of where the knot will be and apply a simple formula and arrive at how thick the lace needs to be. I've used bernie46's method for regular plaiting (take diameter, multiply by 4.5, divide by number of strands) and it seems to work ok. I'd like to know if there is a different multiplier if you want the braiding angle to be different (ie so it results in differently shaped diamonds when braiding).
  7. Heres a sheath I made for a Crocodile Dundee knife. Its veg tanned leather and crocodile with kangaroo lace around the border. Handle braids and sharpening spike lanyard are kangaroo.
  8. I have a new old stock Osbourne splitter for sale. I bought it thinking I would be using it more and havent. It is brand new, never been mounted, never seen leather and comes in the original box with original blade which is VERY sharp. It sat in a hardware that was closed in the 60s along with their other stock. This is literally brand new. Asking 500$ and would consider some trading with it. Thanks for looking Romey
  9. I have been using Bick 4 to wet my kangaroo lace and use it again before and after each rolling of my finished leads. It is starting to cost a lot for the amount I go through especially for the freight as it's heavy. I was trying to find a homemade concoction that would replace it. I found online, a vinegar and olive oil; a beeswax and neetsfoot oil; and a beeswax, neatsfoot oil and parrafin wax recipies. My question is to you experienced and wise leather braiders, what would you use to prewet the lace? What do you use to condition the final product? What are you thoughts on any/all of the above concoctions? Would you share your recipie? Would a homemade concoction last on the shelf, or would it need refrigeration? Thanks so much in advance!
  10. I have been buying premade kangaroo lace and making show dog leads. My problem as I am trying to keep improving, is that the lace isn't the same thickness. Sometiimes it is wonderful and braids easily, and some parts or spools are really thick and hard - like braiding cardboard. My question, is there a way to split the premade lace? Any help is appreciated! Barb
  11. G'day All. I just finished uploading my latest video to my youtube channel http://www.youtube.c...eature=mhee on how to make a stock whip thong.This was #3 in a set of 3. I have quite a few videos on my channel, about 35 at last count that cover making a bull whip, 3 1 hour videos,knots,fancy plaiting and different types of plaiting. If anyone is interested just go to my channel and you might find something useful there. You are very welcome to download them onto your computer to watch at your leisure,there are numerous free programs out there that will allow you to do this and if you use Firefox for your browser there is an add on that you can attach to your toolbar. Hope these can be of some help to anyone starting out and if you have any questions regarding whip making or plaiting feel free to get in touch with me through email.I would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
  12. Good morning, I would like to get some opinions on the best way to put a foundation on the end of the mecate prior to braiding the finished heel knot or pineapple knot over it. I've experimented with different ways, but I've had some slide off in the past. Currently the best way I've found it to use the strands from the braided mecate to tie a six or 8 strand turks head at the end and then build that knot up with tape or hot glue. I've also done it as a spanish ring knot and then looped the free ends of the mecate around it individually like the heel knot of a bosal. Does anyone have any better ideas? Thanks for your input. Tyler
  13. One of my other hobbies is bike riding. So I decided to do a 8 plait on my set of handle bars for my singlespeed bike. Thanks for looking
  14. Tim George of Hamley & Co. in Pendleton, OR is famous for his rawhide braiding. On a slow evening the other night I found a couple of videos on Youtube showing him in action (let's say slow action) cutting strings, etc. He's one of the best full time braiders. If you do a search on Youtube you'll see he's featured in about five videos. Cheers!
  15. I was recently asked to make a 32 plait 3 tone bull whip for a customer. The commission was that the body of the whip had to look like a coral snake colours yellow,red,yellow black. The main thing and the most difficult was to make sure that the strips of colour went around the whip in one ring and not all over the place. Might look easy but it took a bit of working out. The handle design was left up to me.This is the photo I was given to work off.http://snakesfb.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/coral-snake.html
  16. Hey Guys and Gals I'm looking for a used or not in use copy of Randy Reiman and Bill Dorrance's video "Four Strands of Rawhide". Msg me if you would like to get rid of it. Thanks. P.S. also looking for a rein rounder, if somebody wants to part with it. Thanks. Sean
  17. Hello! I am a complete newbie when is comes to making kangaroo leather dog show leads. I have ordered kangaroo leather, paracord, and beads and I am excited to get started. I have a question though, all of the tutorials I have found on here are great for braiding the lead and doing the handle, but all of the leads have a clip. I cant have clips on my leads because I will somehow unclip it while showing, haha! is there anyone who can help me or guide me to a tutorial somewhere? Thanks everyone!
  18. Hello All. Been visiting the site for a while and appreciate the variety of projects and skills displayed...thought I'd add to the mix. I split my time between Port Townsend and Portland. Been tying knots since the Boy Scouts (that would be 50+ years ago) and plaiting for the last 7-8 years. Have worked with Gail Hought and stolen ideas from more folks than I can remember. I'm not a horse person so I've only made a few pieces of horse gear (bosal and reins), but a lot of jewelry, hat bands, bolos, bracelets etc. My latest focus has been on whip making. I've attached a few pics of an Australian Stock whip finished last week. Cheers, Doug
