Two-Feathers tells ya how ta
Make yer own Drinkin' Horn

Drinking Horn

The first thang yer gonna need is patience. This'll take at least a week.
Now, git yerself a horn that's had all the bone and pulp removed. Lone Eagle at Smoke & Thunder has some purty horns fer trade, or they kin gen'rally be found at Rendezvous.

Yer gonna need this stuff, too;

Workin' the outside

You kin work the outside of the horn before or after you work the innards.
Use power tools if ya wanna', but beware - ya can ruin a horn faster'n ya can cuss the belt sander or grinder that chewed a hole in it!

Workin the innards

First Day - Disinfect and deodorize

Second Day - De-slime and begin curing

Third Day - Still curing

Fourth Day - Still curing

Fifth Day - Finish curing

Sixth Day - Finally!

Some folks like ta seal the innards with bees wax or acrylic, but it ain't necessary. Iffin ya drink somethin' hot, the wax will melt. Iffin ya drink spirits, some finishes may disolve an' become toxic.
