I really like that Peter, thanks for posting it.  Never seen one like it.  Amazing what can be made out of just a cow horn and a little ingenuity!  I do a lot of post-and-beam timberframing using all the old original hand tools and we use chalklines every day.  I might have to make a reproduction of this one.  Would be a fun project and combine my loves for woodworking and black-powder gear!

Rich, Thanks for asking.  Until you suggested that I had never even really taken a look at the "over the back fence" section of the site before.  I'm working very long days lately but soon as I get a little time I'll post a few timberframing pics over there.
