After finishing my kibler SMR, I thought I'd make a horn for my hunting kit. It's a medium horn about 13 inches. I dyed the forward part with rit dark brown but it came out almost black. Rubbed it back a little and it mellowed some. Waxed with Renaissance. I still need a few more scrapings of the white part. I'm considering some light scrim design followed by an AQ finish. Butt cap is finished with walnut stain and 3 coats of tried/true oil and later waxed. Pins are small brass nails with the heads antiqued a dark tarnish. I think I'm going to replace the walnut stopper. It is a little too light colored and I don't like the acorn design. 20200523_172814.jpg20200523_172557.jpg20200523_172615.jpg20200523_172527.jpg

Well, the more I looked at the butt cap, the less I liked the turned button at the top. It just seemed too tall and out of balance for the cap itself. So I cut off and carved a new end piece from faux Ivory. Still a little more work to get this complete.

What is the best way to attach this to my possibles bag?
