This is the biggest set of horns i’ve done so far. Made from 12/4 Spanish Cedar with a salvaged Pine center section and wall mount.
The connection of the Cedar to the center piece was achieved by sawing the head off of two 1/2”x 8” lag bolts. Basically like a large stair bolt used to connect handrails. And of course some glue.
I rough these out with my bandsaw. Then use a scaper and the spindle end of my horizontal sander to shape them. Followed by hand sanding.
The carved area in the center section i did with my dremel tool and painted black. The finish is clear satin lacquer.
