Scottish Flat Horn by Justin Spangler

The Blue Merle pattern in the horn was so striking that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a simple flat horn to show off the horn’s natural colors. I used holly for the end of the horn because the original scottish flat horns extensively used holly and bog wood – I also wanted stray into a realm that an astute woodworker or historian would appreciate.

Length on outside of curve: 9?
Pressed thickness: 1?
Materials: holly end and pegs, cow horn
Impartial to left or right dress

  1. Beautiful. Simple and yet ornate. I love the Scottish history to it. The Holly - unique and great choice.
