  • Steer Skull

    This is my first time posting a pic on the forum, thought i would give it a shot and show off the steer skull i just finished out of 10ga. steel. I also have a set of spurs I made from an old rasp. If you look close you will see the small skulls instead of rowels.

      Very Cool.

      Are the horns hollow? And how did you shape them.

      And post up some pics of the rasp spurs.

          Thanks, I ended up using 2 1/2" pipe for the horns and cut and welded until I got the form i was after, it did take awile. Here is a better picture of the spurs. My wife is a Barrel Racer (can chaser) and prefers a bumper spur rather than rowel, so I came up with this. every part is from one of my old shoeing rasps exept the clip for the hanger which i used a piece of 1/8" 7018 rod.

          thanks again.

          I am working on getting a website put together to show off some of these pieces. Along with my Construction projects.

                Do you have any pics of the build-up that show off your work in progress??

                  No i didn't take any pics while putting this together, but that is something i need to start doing. The top of the face is put toghether with 4 pieces and the sides used 5. The eye sockets were formed from a short piece of 2" pipe cut down to scale. The teeth are from 1/2" square tube hammered.

                      Sweet! Nice job. I have the tattoo on my arm. I have wanted to do a horse head for a while but never seem to find the time.
                      Just because you have one, doesn't mean you have to act like one.
