Another Stepped Horn
« on: September 24, 2019, 11:13:00 PM »
 This one is about 7 1/2" long with a 2" butt. The plug is Pine held in with 4 Iron pins. It is covered with tin and it is held on by 8 Iron pins and the screw. It has a Brass Thimble on the tip to strengthen it, held by 2 Iron pins. Color is some Brown Dye and Brown shoe polish.
 Didn't notice until I looked at the Pix below but with the Triangular stopper it reminds me of a Christmas tree in a wind storm.

Are those horn sections pinned together?

Dang Tim. That is fantastic!  Great filing, neat proportions, and nice finish. That metal butt sets it off just right. Totally unexpected horn. Well done.  God bless, Marc

Wow.  I canít imagine the work that goes into that.  I really like the color you achieved the use of tin and the thimble.  Thatís a really cool horn.

I don't know how I missed this yesterday, I had so much going on that I didn't notice it. Yep, that thing just screams Appalachia and I have a "funky" Appalachian style bag to put that on. Thanks Tim, I know that was a labor of love.....

Neat little horn Tim. It must have been really thick to get those steps like that. What kind of metal did you use on the base plug?

   It's a piece of old roofing tin.

Wow, that is some impressive rasping and filing.

Tim, very nice little horn, albeit with lots of filing involved.   Nice touch with the metal on the plug.

That's one heck of a lot of filing.  Not only a lot of filing, but so well done.
