Today I’m showing something that isn’t made of wood if you don’t mind.
The State of Minnesota department I worked for, used to groom Snowmobile trails, I was in charge of maintaining the equipment. One of the groomer operators found this Antler on one of the trails. He kindly gave it to me, because he new I was a carver, even though I had never carved an antler before. It hung around in my shop for quite awhile, until a friend of mine asked me to do a carving on an antler he had found. I told him I didn’t want to ruin his, being I had never attempted this, so I dug out my antler, decided to use mine as a test carving. It turned out fairly decent, so I told him to bring on his antler.
I don’t have a decent picture of that one yet, but I’ll show you mine. My friends antler was twice as large as mine, so I carved the same scene in a larger scale. Someday I’ll visit him, & get a good picture that’s worth showing.
