Lost and Found
« on: April 06, 2020, 11:39:51 PM »
One advantage of a quarantine is, if youíre purging closets of clutter, you can sometimes come across things you forgot you had or havenít been able to find in a long long time. One of my highlights was I found this version of a Tansel horn that I started over two years ago, and have looked everywhere for!  It was wrapped inside a sock stuck in a box of stuff that wasnít even mine!  Anyway, itís about 75% done.  And now I can finish it.

 Looks like a good start. The fish mouth is a tough piece of work to get right and yours look like it is well on the way. I would like to know though why you have already fitted and pinned the butt in place? As it's said,  "To each his own" but I'm just curious. It is probably the last thing I do before final finish.

 Thanks, Tim

I have done the same. Once I even had the horn sold and couldn't find it. That looks like a dam fine project to work on. Please post the finished horn.

I'm with Steve. I'm looking forward to the finished product as well.
Within this horn their doth abide
A dost to humble tyrants pride
Then let us rise and play our part
And bloody tirants to the heart
The Lord will shield us in the fight
And we shall put our foes to flight
Then Freedom shall be ours forever more
And Liberty resound from shore to shore

Tim.  I normally do like you describe for a turned base plug and install it at the very end.  I donít remember why I went ahead and put it in there now. I think it was part of a demo i was doing and I was showing some horns in various stages of construction. So I put the base in that one to show the progression.  Itís probably a good thing I did in hindsight or the base would probably still be gone!!   :)

I am the master of putting things in a "safe place" and then spending years trying to find them again. I am also the master of "I just set it down, I know it's here" while holding the object I'm looking for in my hand.

Nope.  Some major home projects jumped in front!  I'll get back around to it eventually and post the progress.
