Here before you are three axis and whitetail deer horns put together to hold candelabra lights for wall sconces. They seemed pretty easy looking at drawings until the designer started putting details in the design hidden on the drawings I received. The first problem we had was most all horns curved in ways that wouldn’t work. I settled on Axis horns that were the smallest I could find with smaller whitetail horns for backdrop . The next problem was to locate the right position for the light fixture for height and a light shade had to be at the top of the metal. All four sconces had to be in the same position to look the same. I built a jig to hold the candelabra fixture in the right place and drilled into another piece of plywood to hold the horns in place. I then transfered the drilled horns to the plate metal. Before I finalized the placement I had to drill the metal with a larger hole so the screw didn’t pull the metal up. After accomplishing this I removed all tape and finished the walnut backing with sprayed conversion varnish. The designer accepted the pieces with amazement on how perfect they were . All this and Heaven too.
