Roy Howman
Ashland, OH

Roy Howman grew up in rural Ohio with a love of American history and an artistic streak that he has honed over the last 30 years building furniture and various other woodworking projects. When a neighbor moved in next door that was involved in the muzzle loading community, Roy knew that it was something that he wanted to be a part of. It became apparent that being involved with muzzle loaders would give Roy the opportunity to combine both things he loved, history and woodworking. Roy's specialties are powder horns done in the style of 18th and 19th century originals. Roy likes to use a little bit of creative license when doing a project so that each item is unique, but has the look and feel that would be right at home in any 18th century home or cabin. Roy occasionally does other projects such as rifles, war clubs and powder measures when time allows. He is a member of the New Frontiersmen muzzle loading club. He is also a proud member of the CLA and the Horner's Guild. Roy is a member of Wulff's Company of Rangers. To see more of Roy's finished work visit his website at or contact him via e-mail at
