Coyote call made from Elk antler and walnut.
Spray lacquer finish.
About 5” long.
It required a lot of CA glue to stabilize the inside, the antler is very porous.
This one is a long range jackrabbit.
The walnut is scraps from some fancy wood I turned bowls out of. I just could not throw away the corners of the bowl blanks.

That looks like a good size piece. How long does it take you to stabilize the horn? Do you use a ca glue accelerator to speed it up or just let it dry?

Handsome piece. Where’s the audio? Can we have a demo? :)

Is the antler porous in this section or in the entire antler? I thought most antler was pretty solid and stable unless left out in the elements or damaged from fighting or too close to the skull.

The outside of the antler is solid from 1/8” to 1/4” but the inside is a soft porous honeycomb. I have tried saturating it with thin CA and it runs out the other end, so I use thick CA and let it soak in several coats from each end then drill a 3/4” hole all of the way through. Then I coat the hole with several coats of thick CA using accelerator between each coat.

I will try to post an audio of the calls…I’m not sure how to do it though.
