Thanks for the kind words. I am working on the buffalo horns at this time, because the rough sanding is done outside where the dust can blow away with the wind. Winter is approaching, and I want to get a few of these howlers ready to go. Buffalo horn requires quite a lot of time spent sanding and polishing, but the end result makes it more than worthwhile.

Nice job Rich. Those bad boys require a lot of sanding and finishing. I have only made two from authentic Buffalo horn and I won't be doing anymore. It's simply too labor intensive for me. They are super rough and sinewy horns. I wet sanded with different grits for hours to fair them out. I have only this one left for sale and I'm done.Attached File  1.jpg   22.12KB   46 downloads
