Walnut and antler dressing chair. I built this piece to put in my gallery and the more I look at it, the more I like it. The trim is out of antler, and I use an oil finish on the wood to give it a rustic look but still refined.

Very cool and slightly dangerous-looking!

I have some antler shed I’ve been wondering what to do with. Now I know (at least to try).

This is a great piece, very creative. I love the one-of-a-kind nature of this type of woodworking. Also, incorporating a different medium (antlers) into the artwork makes it that much more beautiful.

Amazing, but be really careful when you sit down. Might find a surprise of some sort.

I love it. Very rustic. Would look great in a hunting room.

Nice chair. Thanks for posting. What is the board-foot price of antler :-)
