The first picture is the finished project. The second one is the cabinet in the condition we got it. The next ones are sanded down, woodburned and deer prints on the top drawer. The next two are the basket of antlers & the antlers turned into pulls. Boy!! I didn’t know antlers were made of “Gold”. Man, they were expensive to buy on Ebay. But luckily I had a friend who had the antlers collecting dust and said I could use what I needed. He had a rack in there that he had intended on mounting so as a Thank you I am going to mount them for him. Boy won’t he be surprised. And for my next project I am going to refinish a toy box to make it match. I’m doing this all for my son.

People go to ebay, and think they’re going to make/save a fortune. What they (and maybe you) don’t realize is that fortunes are made by volume, not by sucking the blood out of one person on one sale. You did well, and are rewarding your friend for not trying to be a get-rich-quick person, who I normally call thieves. Good call!

And, by the way, that’s a nice restoration and reuse of old to make something nice, while you’re at it.

I bought a brand new lathe from a guy who never even put it together, since he was too busy. The first turning I made off it was his, gratis, as a thank you. I think that’s what you are doing with the rack of antlers.
