Check out the horn that davec2 has on the blog. Outstanding work of art. But, coming from David, I for one wouldn't expect anything less. Great work David. Keep'em coming. ;)

It's a small league with very few players.  Dave, you are a true Craftsman!  That's beautiful work.

That horn is a jaw dropper.  It also has a very old 19th century feel to it.  Great work.

Thank you all for the kind comments.  The horn doesn't stack up to many I have seen from real horn makers, but I make what appeals to me.  I like to think that's what the guys who used these horns originally did.

To those of you who sent me e-mails about this horn, thanks also for taking the time to write.  I appreciate the kind words.

Sincerely,

Dave C
