Powder Horn for a friend
« on: July 02, 2023, 02:58:19 AM »
A friend in the gun club bought an old, not antique, horn and asked if I could fancy it up for him. He just asked that his last name be on it. I shaped the neck, did the engraving and stained it for him. The rawhide patch covers a worm hole that appeared as I was thinning down the neck.

I normally don't like patches on guns or horns however that patch I like.  Well done.
