No a wooden project so I’m posting it here instead of in my completed projects. Finished my first bone carving. I found the bone, as a material, incredibly satisfying to work with. Guess I have to get some more none in the ground!

Cow bone for carving. Preparing these took roughly three months. Bit more than two underground to let nature strip away most of the leftover flesh. Then dig it out, saw in half, scrape out the marrow. Put in a mixture of vinegar and salt. Then for a few days in water and hydrogen peroxide. Then dry. Voila!

carving in horn, #1: Carving in horn(raindeer) in progress.
