That's a really nice horn. What type of wood was used for your rifle stock. That's an incredible piece. Looks like tiger/curly maple?

Someone gave me this horn last night. It's older and a little rough, but I'm going to work with it. The double twist is amazing.

That it is. Grew up up there and the folks still live there. Not much work in Cranberry so I now live down close to Syracuse.

I broke a drill bit in the spout. Brick Wall,) I'm going to saw it off and place in a brass spout instead. Just havn't had time to do any of my hobby work lately. Hopefully I'll be able to sit and do some work this month.
By the way, I like that bag knife you posted. That's really neat.

Ended up putting in a brass spout. Not done yet, but here's what I've got so far. I hope antiquing the horn will bring out the scrimshaw.

Oops. Put the photos in backwards. Line reads, "With strength I hold this horn. With courage I hold the line."

Here is a glimpse of the base. Pretty busy.
