UT fan Danial MacPhail sent in this photo of a Longhorn chair he handcrafted. MacPhail says he has been building chairs using real horns for about 25 years, since he moved from Denton County, Texas, to Washington D.C (he now lives in Kentucky). A bout of Texas nostalgia prompted him to have the horns shipped East, providing the material for his first Longhorn chair.
MacPhail also crafts everything from chandeliers to mirrors and sculptures out of elk antlers and other unconventional materials. He’s even created a Longhorn Christmas tree.
