"Spolded" is sometimes used in place of "spalted" although it's not an officially accepted term, slang?

Gunmaster,

If it's "wood", how can it be a "horn"?


Just busting on you, looks good. I've been so busy building guns I haven't had time to do any horns or flasks or measures or...

Do you have any bigger pic's you can post?

thanks guys,
i don't have any bigger pics.
well here's how i did it. started with 3/4 inch oak slab. used scroll saw cut out shape then cut out the inside leaveing 3/8 inch all around to get my hollow piece.used two 1/4 inch walnut slabs for the sides.then recut on scroll saw close as possible. for the cap i used 1 inch round hickory dowle rod. then weeks of hand sanding to shape all together.

wanted to use brass fixings but made a wooden stopper instead
