I carved this out of some 6×8 long leaf Heart Pine beam material. The horns I attached with stair lag bolts. The finish is a clear semi gloss lacquer.

If i keep hand sanding projects like this i’ll probably be a contender in an arm wrestling championship somewere soon. Heart pine aint like Basswood or Balsa! Lol

Impressive, I bet those are real popular in your area. I love the color of the long leaf pine.
