here is a Rum horn i just finished up for out clubs christmas party give away

The plugs are fiddle keys . Both ends were made from black walnut . I forged a couple staples to hold a strap .
The inside I coated with brewers wax to make sure she wouldn’t leak .
It will hold a pint and then some .

Would you be willing to recreate the rum horn as a commissioned project?
