  1. Slow ,but I am looking , for what I can find. Have some ideas. One question. Is the body of Antler solid or , are they hollow? Ready to cut a section, and keeping the end to make a small pendant.
  2. Had a Saturday and Sunday Arts and Crafts Festival the largest in south Ms. the festival was good but was cold for us southerners windy and cold. But Saturday I got a nice surprise delivered to me . Thanks very much for the antler. Looking to see what I can find in it to carve.
  3. It ok don’t worry about it , I am trying to get myself ready for the local Arts and crafts Festival and show, here in our town and it is right on the side of our building, so I set up in our side yard. Show is Saturday and Sunday, been doing it since 1990.
  4. Thanks for sharing your time and information. If I get some antler I will have to try carving it. Your Pinterest pictures are inspirational and your site is very interesting. Thanks for sharing your time and information. Got something to think about.
  5. That sounds interesting, never worked with antler, but would like to see it and then maybe try it. Tell me what you do to work with antler.
  6. Most of my Dragonflies are 2 -1/2 to 3 inches, I make them with what wood I have or have found. The one shone is right in the middle of that. If pictures are wanted I will be glad to post later.

    Fall

    I am fortunate enough to live in the south and I have an inside work place a walk-in closet.
  8. The wax is the last step, it is carnauba wax in a block form and the hardest wax I have found. I buff it with a rotary chamois strips and a rotary nylon string buffer. If pictures are wanted I will be glad to post later.
  9. I have a home made rotary flap sander it is a small drum sander I cut strips to sand and then I use a buffing wheel and polishing compound then I wax with carnauba wax.
  10. Yes I have hit the same, most was with a rotary tool and rotary sander. Then finished with a knife and chisels. Then buffed, polished, and waxed.
  11. A little box made out of leftovers . Walnut sides , joint cut with Japanese saw and small chisel , top i do not know but is grain and wavy looking, added a small fall leaf, out of Pink Ivory wood. I made this awhile back but had to share.
  12. Had a small piece of walnut burl leftover from a project in the past. Difficulty carving, had to use my power grinder then finished with small knives. Then polished and waxed. May add some beads to make it a necklace.
  13. Dragonfly is Red heart carved , polished, waxed, ready to be strung for a necklace.
