A couple completed horns
« on: November 27, 2018, 08:23:19 AM »
This first one was a sheep horn I got in Jordan from the locals after they butchered it.Made up a powderhorn with it to soothe my muzzleloading cravings.The wood is some spalted wood I found on a wood pallet.





This one is a cow horn ordered from PHAM website.One of my coworkers in Jordan wanted one for his dad so I made this one up.







I do like horning.Compact projects I can take with me overseas.Expect more completed horn posts soon lol. :wavey:

Question: Did you "stabilize" the spalted wood?

After sitting in 10% humidity and 111 degrees for a couple summers in Jordan I didn't feel any need to lol.She's probably pretty stable as is.

I'm just dabbiling with knife making now.Unfortunately I don't have the matching side to make a patch knife although that would've been the thing to do.
