Horn Tip - Plan B
« on: September 11, 2019, 05:35:07 AM »
I started this horn several years back as a screw tip and scrapped it all because the threads didnít hold in the black tip I had started on. I recently pulled it out of a drawer and decided to finish it.  Went with a walnut Virginia-esqe base, a little light antiquing, and the damaged screw tip became a pinned applied tip.  Some of my ďPlan BísĒ work out better than others.

It turned out really nice.  I like the shape and colors. Looks like it would comfortable to wear.

 Nice job, you will see quite a few horns that started life as a screw tip and ended up having the tip pinned. The horn itself was a great pick to start with.

Brian, sometimes Plan B turns out as good or better than the original intent.  Well done, love the horn shape and color.

Very nice.  A very good horn-making project.
