As promised some time ago here is the horn I have been working on all winter. It is scrimshawed in the traditional style. It has a turned elmwood plug, rope border, crossed rifles, ingrailment, brass hardwear and scroll. In the scroll is a quote from Thomas Jefferson ” Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those that do not.” The brass spout is a 90gr fast flow spout. I haven’t antiqued it yet or made the strap. The strap will be made by way of card weaving the oldest form of weaving. I like this one more than any I have made I may not sell it. I know I will for the right money. I’ll just make another one. Thats why I put the 90gr spout on thats what I shoot. This was the whole reason for getting the lathe out and learning how to turn. The only thing is I’m haveing so much fun on the lathe I haven’t done much of anything else.
