These are the chrome cartridge kits from woodturningz.com with whitetail antler. The one on the right was drilled off-center so I could get a bit of the spongy center of the horn (filled with medium CA and antler dust) to show.
My Father-in-law is a bug deer hunter, and one of these is for him...
I've been really getting into turning lately but have been all but absent from LJ's. Nothing super special compared to other's pens but I'm still proud of them. I'm finding it's not about the project but the process when turning a pen. Everyone has a pen and they're cool but the process is what...
My neighbor gave me a piece of walnut from a tree that he cut down on his property. He's an avid hunter, so I thought it would be nice to make an antler mounting plaque for him. Piece was routed using a Shark CNC.
This isn't truly woodworking but I did use the same tool set for these knife handles as for my wood carvings. I have a customer that is a flintknapper that specializes in replicating stone tools made by Native Americans, prehistoric Europeans creating lithic art and needed some 20 Elk and Deer...
More Elk Antler Coyote Calls.
I have refined the design a little and tried to make the mouth piece look like it grew right out of the antler.
These are Bubinga and Cocobolo.
I have burned my brand on to these, it can be seen on the shoulder of the call, it is a Bar Lazy U.
The found wood for this walking stick comes from a backyard mountian ash trimming. Often very usable wood is sitting close by but we don't always notice it. The handle is made from a elk antler , the first year elk grow straight antler , the antlers grow as 2 single spikes known locally as a '...
My first commisioned pen project. This is 3 chrome Wallstreets made with whitetail deer antler for a work mate who presenting these as family gifts. I also made a simple pen display sprayed with a stone faux paint and antler holder. Thanks for looking.
Here are some razors made this week - One set is out of antler, Minnesota white tail - they have really nice color! One set is Acrylic and one is out of Bubinga. The Bubinga has several coats of CA to protect from water.
This cane has been "SOLD" and resides in Clements, Kansas USA
If you are surfing looking for a special walking cane on the internet, go toward the bottom of this posting where you'll find a list of canes that I have built that are ready to ship...
This found wood cane uses spruce [no insects this time] with the outer bark removed down to the inner bark. I gentily warmed the bark to raise the sap in beads on the surface. Then with a rubber glove rubbed the sap onto the surface . I'd like to think this adds to the colour but I could just be...
The Mountian Lion was carved into a spur on the elk button [what's a elk button ?] . There wasn't enough of the little spur to carve both sides of the face but I think I like the way it turned out better . When you turn the the stick you kind of discover the mountain lion hiding there. The elk...
A second go at turning and shaping a cane. The top 1/3 of the shaft and the handle where hand shaped ,the bottom of the shaft was turned. The walnut shaft is part of a garage sale find , I have only 2 pieces left now [rats]. I chose lace wood for the handle for it's dark colour to match the...
I don't think this is really a true tee handle cane. I left enough antler at the rear of the handle so the whole hand can grasp the handle without needing to hook the index finger in front of the shaft. But I was hoping to keep the option open to still use this cane as a tee handle by leaving a...

Well have you ever been out picking Saskatoons berries or the like , and found a cluster of berries up high on a branch just out of reach ? You could make yourself a hiking stick along these these lines , that has a built in hook. Just take that hook and reach up and hook that branch, and bring...
