    Not nearly as difficult as Was expected, but it is very plain and functional. Carved the plug also.

    Congrats, that's a good looking horn. Scroll down 8 or 9 threads and you'll find some interesting stuff on horns. Just had another good looking horn completed last week.

    Well, it isn’t too difficult to pop it into a box, and plain old mail it to me. I do function testing, sometimes for prolonged periods of time.

    Beautiful ! :cool:

    A simple, tasteful working horn. Nicely done!

    Very nice indeed! Clean lines and nice complimentary strap. I also like the fact that the pour end has remained thick. Horn likes to split from peg pressure.
    Good job!:thumb:

    I like the "plain and functional" look. Did you make the strap as well? We discussed the making of a strap on a inkle loom to a small degree. I may take that up as a next project some day. And I don't believe "peg pressure"has been discussed anytime recently.

    You did an excellent job with that horn (your first??) I like it a lot and would be proud to carry it.
