I’ve come across a source for antlers and decided to make some pens and these have been a really popular. Finished with CA and micro sand.

Those are really cool. The smell that cutting or grinding of antler will leave is something you won’t forget..lol.

That’s the hardest thing to get past. Reminds me of the dentist every time I start drilling it too.

I agree with the stink…...yikes!
You did a good job of keeping a lot of the brown in the antler so a person can tell that it actually did come from and antler. The 2 times I tried they just looked like white pens and it was hard to figure out if the material was just plastic or what?
Well done.

Yep, I try to drill at an angle as much as i can or over to one side. You never know just what will come out but I had one that had a purple tint to it and for some reason I didn’t take a pic of it.

Great set of pens! I have done the antler thing a few times and it is hard to work with. Not the turning part but the aroma part.

Great job and thanks for sharing!!!

Yes, possible but the smell is intense. You know the smell when the dentist is drilling tooth for filling? Multiply by 10 and you’ll be close. I work through it though because they are good sellers and gifts.
