Here is a before and after picture of the latest call I made. This is a goat horn that I started with and after a bunch of grinding, sanding and polishing the call is born.

Yep! I could almost get a mass produced tone board and install it in the left over but I only do custom tone boards.

I can definately give it a shot, some of the horns have separations in them, like de-laminating on plywood, but out of 4 horns I was able to use 3.
