Horn in progress
We Twisted the plywood into shape and stuck the smaller end into the round hole cut in the plywood. Then the portholes were cutout and trimmed. How do you like the shape of the horn so far? Photos of actual fog horns show a long slightly tapered horn, like a clarinet, so this horn is trying to mimic that shape as well as look loud, like Gabriels trumpet. The next trick is the bellows assembly that is the engine that runs the whole structure. And then we have to support the horn up off the ground.......
