So are you saying that a "pair" are 19.7 inches and 27.56 inches tip to tip? That would mean the horns would be around 10- 14 inches long. Good sizes for powder horns.

Itís the outside curve of the horn used to make horn bellies.

How finished are you looking for? Finish as in you finish tillering it, or, finish as you put a finish on it? Right now I have a English long bow that is finished tillering, and has tallow beeswax on it. It still needs horn or antler nocks put on. Is that too finished?

I was thinking like a square blank that needs to be shaped and tillered. So I can try tillering it myself.

If itís a hassle then we can trade for yew or vine maple. I havenít had the privilege of working with either here in kentucky. Itís not one of the native woods
