  1. I have recently gotten hold of a 70cm long deer antler and I want to turn part of it into a set of runes as a Christmas present for a friend... The only thing is that I have absolutely no idea how to do that. I have never really done any carving, but have always been crafty and prefer using my hands to make things. Any suggestions, tips, links, book/video recommendations, tool suggestions, etc. welcome. and very much appreciated. I've been looking forward to diving into something like this for a long time.
  2. Hello hippies I start with the question for those who can/want to answer it but dont care to go through my intro. And it's about antler. I’ve read posts here and elsewhere, watched videos but I’d like to get an answer from someone who has used antler before. Remember that I live in the Netherlands and can’t get any moose stuff here, just European stuff. What exactly is inside the antler?

I hoped they’d be more compact.
  3. Hello, I'm Steve from Bozeman, MT. I've been finding some shed antlers lately and have more from my girlfriend's family that we've found riding pastures. I made a bolo tie from the first shed I found and cobbled together a little how to video in case you'd like to make one yourself! Please let me know what you think! Glad to be here!

  5. Hi All, I have spent a while carving a ryusa style netsuke in antler. Antler is very lovely, but I want to pick out some details in colour (greens and browns as the carving is of an owl in an oak tree). I only want some delicate staining, I do not want to overpower the material and do not want to use surface pigment that will rub off with wear and tear. Any advice, or links to other discussions would be gratefully accepted. Andrew
  6. Hi All, just to say hello everyone and to introduce myself, I am a wood-carver of many years, and a wood-work tutor and wood-carving instructor; my speciality is in ships-carving, particularly tiller-handles, but I also carve lovespoons and engrave rifle-stocks. Anyhow, I have started developing an interest in early medieval crossbows, specifically the inlaid carved antler plate-work. Being suitably intrigued I have acquired some fallow deer antler (this winter's cast) and now find I do not know what to do with it. So, should I wash the whole of the antler in soapy water, or cut the p
