  1. Well Hello!!! I thought this site was gone. The last time I tried to log on I was told it no longer existed. Imagine my surprise when in the course of looking for info I found a link to this page. Now I have to re-learn how to do things here. Here is a photo of one of my Antler knife handles...I hope I have this sized right
  2. Hello! I live about 30 miles west of Wilmington, NC. I carve antler as one of my mediums. Please share your work. I'm sure everyone here would love to see it.
  3. Beautiful work. Hey ya'll. Been a while since I was on here. I'm catching up on what you have all been doing.
  4. I've been looking at a Turbocarver with great interest. I want a high speed tool for carving bone and antler as well as wood. I don't have a clue as to which is the best. Any thoughts?
  5. Michiel, Sorry to hear about the floods. Glad to hear that all are well. I like the antler work as I do some myself. What kind of tools do you use to work the Antler? I use a Dremel tool (rotary tool) with a carbide burr and finish with hand tools. Mostly I use an engravers tool for scraping as it hold an edge for a long time when used in antler. Thanks for sharing the photo's.
  6. This Owl has been visiting me in the mornings when I go outside. Monday it watched me grill steaks at about 11:oo AM. It watched me load my lawn mower and string trimmer in the trailer on Wednesday and today I saw it fly into a tree at the rear of my house and I walked outside with the camera. It let me get to within 10 feet and snap all the photo's I wanted too. Seems strange that it isn't afraid of me.
  7. Very nice. I tried the basket weave with dreadful results. Guess I need to practice a lot. Great piece, thanks for the photo's.
  8. Beautiful job as usual. Thanks for sharing with us.
  9. Here is the cane I am making for myself. Made many for others, so now it is my turn. Please bear in mind that the carvings are not finished. First face is about 2 inches by 1 inch, next one is about 3 inches tall.
  10. Don't know why it wouldn't post the photo. But here goes again.
  11. Carved this piece of deer antler a while back. Did a lot of hand finish work using a graver as a scraper and some home made tools. The rough out was done with a Dremel tool and a carbide burr.
