I wanted to put together a horn or 2 and ended up building 7. I also never intended on polishing them out, but once I started and got the hang of it, I started polishing them out 85-90% of the way. Also started pounding out the staple to hook the shooting bag strap to hold the horn. The biggest PITA is making the spout stopper. I need to purchase a lathe so I can do them more efficiently. I actually find it peaceful working on them and watching them come to life.
