These are some steer horns im making out of 16/4 Mahogany and salvaged Pine. The connection to the center pc of wood is accomplished with a lag bolt that i cut the head off of so its similar to a handrail bolt connection(and glue). I rough the horns out on the bandsaw and the business end of a horizontal sander. Then connect together and use a scaper, horiz sander and good ole hand sanding.
The center part is 3 1/2” thick and the length is 42” overall. This is prob about 10 hours to get to this stage.

That sounds cool. I was wondering if it was going on the hood of a car or something….

Great looking horns.

I was noticing your sawblade. Do you use it for cutting finished plywood. LOL

Horns… cruelty free! But what did you do with the rest of the, uh, animal, cut it up and sticker it? ;)
