Beautiful Handmade Antler Pen

I’ve been experimenting with different pen materials for awhile now. I thought I would see what I could do with deer antler.

This is a very labor intensive process, but the results were worth it.  The antler took on the appearance of fine alabaster when I was done with it.

    That is really nice, Man.

    What did you use to get that kind of shine?

    I’;ve been a wood turner for years, but never tried a deer antler. Where did you get the idea for this?

    This is really nice what work you do on deer. DO you think moose antler would be too big? How you know what to use?
