Horn With Screw-In Plug
« on: June 03, 2019, 03:35:32 PM »
 This is my second shot at this horn, on the first one the tip cracked and I had to add am applied tip.
I is from a horn in Jay Hopkins' book, Bone Tipped & Banded Horns page 186-87.
 It is about 11" tip-to-tip. The 2" Maple butt is held  by Ten Brass tacks, it is has a ring for the strap held on by a cotter key. Threaded 1/2-6 for the plug which is slightly hollowed out so the key could be bent over and it is concaved to make it easier to fill. Single band/strap holder is secured by Three Iron pins. The color was done with AF and Brown shoe polish.

Wow Tim. I own one of your horns, and itís a prized possession. I fully expect to own one just like this one as well at some point. Very nice.

Bhmack, I have learned over time to get something when you see it. In my life experiences, it is the things Iíve missed that stick in my brain.
Like womens shoes, a man can never have too many horns. :-)

God bless, Marc

I know thatís right. Heís got another for me in the pipeline. Iím anxiously waiting. Unfortunately as a working stiff from Tennessee, after a horn and bag from Tim and a Brooks rifle in the last month Iím relegated to a jealous observer for the Ďtime beingí, as we say. (Not to mention, as we speak, Iím sitting in a hotel room in Madison, IN while Iím spending a few days at Friendship, trying to figure out how I can fanagle a Duprey I saw hanging on a rack at the shoot.....which made me wonder if I could sell my Wrangler and Uber back to Tennessee without my wife divorcing me. )

Oh, now that's a tough decision! 🤔

When you get that new born be sure to post it. Tim, that's a dandy horn and I dig that yellow color too. It really highlights the "grain" of the horn very nicely.
