I found one of these at a yard sale in KY.
It’s one side of a fancy horse collar. Think Budweiser Clydesdales.

It will be the top of an inlaid walking stick.
I don’t turn, so I’m now in the process of building a simple router jig to turn the stick. Ala Bill Hylton in Router Magic.
When I get the jig built I’ll have some pics. Then more as I use it to turn and create cavities for epoxy and turquoise inlays.
We are headed for Okinawa on the 12th of this month, so the build may be prolonged.
Stay tuned.
