Pens might be the only thing left on Wall St soon, and these are nice looking pens. How was the deer antler to turn? Any tips or concerns thatb I should be aware of – I’ve got one of these on my X-Mas to do list. Thanks.

Very nice pens, I’ve always enjoyed the Wall Street II’s. Love the finish on your pens – very nice shine.

The deer antler was tougher than wood for sure… The hardest thing was drilling the hole on a curved and mishapped object… I am working on a mthod to boil them and then reshape them…

I use a CA Boiled Linseed finish… You can go to http://www.penturners.org/forum/showthread.php?t=319 for some great videos on the process…

I’ve made a couple of deer antler/30-06 cartridge pens with good sucess. I found the best way to drill the antler was to cut it to just a little longer than finished length. This was the only way I could get a relatively straight piece to drill. One other thing…it stinks to high heaven when drilling or turning. Think burnt hair. I found it tolerable setting up a fan to blow across the length of the lathe so I didn’t inhale too much of the stench. I also used a CA finish with Meguiars carnuba wax (its all I had). these were for my nephew and brother’s graduations. enjoy the pics. cartridge & antler pen

Beautiful work. I have to do a couple of caribou antler Sierra pens. I wear a respirator when I turn that stuff.
