carved from elk antler and different types of wood.Usually what ever I happen to pick up.I dsigned these to be used like you would a scrap book,to be filled with tiny treasures and keepsakes.I also know quite a few people who use them for urns. These are one of my favorite things to do with antler,and I love the mixture of antler and wood together.They have a good feel and the design possibilities are endless.

Very nice. I thought maybe you use it for spirits- the kind you drink. I’m thinking of making a cane like that where the handle is the cap for a long narrow decanter!

great work on the antler. i use alot of beef bone in my canes and have been carving it with woodworking gouges, rifflers and files. what did you use to get the great detail of the fish and background?

That is nice, the wood and antler together. ‘Treasure Keepers.’ I’ll bet they are good sellers. Nice carving.
