Be sure and wear a dust mask and work in a well ventelated area.  The dust from the horn can do nasty things if you get it in your lungs.

of a drill... but what I am not sure about is finishing horn in a period manner 
to get a good polished look to it.
What would people recommend?  I am thinking progressively lighter sanding then 
finishing it off with good old beeswax but want to make positive I am doing the 
right thing. Does anyone have any period documentation I could see on such a
