    You only say that because you're looking at it's best side.

    Then there's this...

    I was thinking it might be a good instrument to play that old Beatles tune - Norwegian Wood.

    Well, I am Norwegian American. Totally. That must be it right there.

    A functioning wooden (maybe Bugle) may be in the future. I should not waste my time on such nonsense, though.

    I should not take away from my paintbrush time, should I?

    It's all art my friend, not something I'm particularly good at - no imagination you see. I see metal structures in my minds eye, not landscapes or waterways as you do.

    We can't be responsible for any sharp metal objects in your minds eye. This is an official disclaimer.
    I cannot be responsible for any images contained inside my minds eye either- not at all. The images that come out on canvas have been tamed somewhat, and it's impossible for me to put down exactly what I want to when I imagine it beforehand. It's close, though..........

    Well it seems that the trumpet imperative exist here - the need to practice, practice, practice ;-)

    So ... Just a lot of Tender Loving Care and a passel full of patience. Dent balls and the right bell mandrel take care of most, and I'd attack the split with electro brazing, reams and grinders. With SP by Anderson, 3K might be enough to make it like new. My now discarded Boy Scout bugle was worse including 2 .22 caliber bullet holes in it (Yeah, I put them in it, to make sure it was dead.)
