Turning Horn 2
Sep 13th, 2012 at 7:06am
 
Here's a horn I completed last week. The spout is turned from horn. It's interesting that, as the shape evolves through the layers of horn, the color changes. The spout was turned separately and then attached (epoxy) to the horn. The old guys used a pin.

The base plug was turned from cherry with an 1800 half cent (replica) inlayed.

The post was turned from brass rod and threaded. Brass can be turned nicely on my little Jet lathe (using files). The ring was made from a piece of coat hanger wire.

Again, that is beatiful.
Did you "antique" it?

Jeff:  I didn't do any "antiquing".  It's an easy way to really screw up a lot of work if one (me) doesn't know how to do it correctly.  There are horners who really know how to do it and some who just overdo it.  I'm not there yet.
