Here is the first belly braided and the second bolster attached. Not seen but underneath this is the handle cover that splits off the end of the nail into several tapered strands and the first bolster. These two things form the initial core of the whip which the first belly is braided over. The unbraided strands at the end of the belly will be tapered and form an unbraided core that will fit inside the bolster.
