KinkyCrafter 20080407 – Floggers

In tonight’s show, I’ll be discussing the construction of a fairly basic flogger. It’s nothing pretty, but very functional. The following pictures were takes during the construction for reference and are linked to the full sized images. The quality of images should be improving in upcoming craft segments. One quick note, after talking about the basic construction of the flogger, I accidentally skipped over the description of cutting the straps into 0.5″ falls with the Australian strander. This process is shown below. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me at
