What kind of glue would be best please?

Great Instructable! I just made one of these using the leather seat of a broken office chair. The piece of leather ended up being 20" x 20" after I cut off the sides. I wrapped the handle part of the leather around a 1/4" wooden dowel and used string to wrap the handle in place of the glue.

This is actually a flogger, not a whip, but a nice, simple design. To help with keeping the handle round, you can use a wood dowel wrapped in the leather to strengthen it and make it round. :)

Also, upholstery tacks along the outer edge of the handle can add a nice touch. :)

Great instructable. (To be a bit nit-picky, this is a flogger, not a whip.) I've been using a similar technique for years. Rather than use the rolled leather for a handle, I turn wooden handles on a lathe, bore out the end and then glue the roll into the handle. After the glue dries, I bore a hole through the wood and the leather roll and insert a brass pin to reinforce the joint. Using this method, you only need to leave about two inches uncut for the roll. It does, of course, require a lathe and some simple woodworking skills. For material to make the floggers, check your local thrift shops. I've found numerous leather and suede skirts, dresses and jackets for as little as 25 cents each. You can make several floggers from a single garment, depending on the length and size.

Looks good - I like the simplicity. Think I'd have to decorate it with some fancy knotwork if I make one :)

I didn't realise it would be so easy.

Good write-up.
