I just finished this nice Lobed Powder Horn, which has been purchased. It measures 10.5" and is a Left carry.

I think that's one of the best yet. I really like the size of your horns as well. I sure whoever got the horn will be very happy with it.

That's an outstanding horn. The carving and scrimshaw are as perfect as I have ever seen.

Fabulous workmanship, all around.

Hi fellas,
I really appreciate the nice comments and thoughts about this horn. I am happy it's got a great home to go to and will be used with the owner's newly arrived .36 Kibler SMR.
Naturally there are things that I see in it that I could have done a better job with- each horn is a learning adventure. I really had no pre-conceived idea of how I would be decorating this one and it just evolved one step at a time. I am sure that having a finished horn to copy would be so much easier to do (designing a new horn takes literally hours and hours of work for me), but I don't like copying other's creations so much as making my own. The cool part of horn making for me is that it's an adventure, not knowing exactly what it will finish-up looking like. Thats the uniqueness of these as art forms. Folk-art, really. I love it.

Very nice!!
Hi and thank you. I am a member of the HCH, but have no luck trying to figure out how to post pictures there.
I had trouble also, but went to Imgur.bb and finally got it to work. It’s free. There is a tutorial on Horners Bench forum that I followed. The site used to be very active but fell into disuse because of the picture issue. I would like to see it revived.
