    Still debating whether I should make the top surface of the lower horn pointy or leave it curved.

    Have you thought about how you are going to stop the stain bleeding over the unstained area? In my ignorance Iíd be thinking about adding a coat or two of clear before completing this step.

    Nope I have not. I'm going to experiment with my test stick when we get to that point.

    Do you call the stick 'Al'?

    Well calling it Hal doesn't seem like a good idea so maybe...
    I decided to pointy up the top of the lower horn and I'm happy with that decision. Then taped up the sides and grainfilled the chamfer. I hate that stuff even though I'm beginning to get the hang of it.

    Hal works as well.

    As in "test stick Hal".

    No?

    Well that's vexing. It turns out the clear poly I've bought isn't actually dilutable with my turps. Which is vexing as I poured the whole pot in.
    I'm also not happy about how the stain is bleeding on Hal.
    Going to go away and think about things for a bit.

    Why donít you give it a couple of coats to seal in the colour and sand the natural area once again?
