Very cool twisted juniper limb with a mule deer antler shed that has been weathered for quite some time. With a little sanding, the antler started to look like wood. This piece is hand rubbed with 4 coats of Minwax Tung Oil, I used it on the antler as well. Seemed to work, it gave me the look I was hoping for.

Lots of patience and a long drill bit. I have to drill from the top and bottom and try and meet in the middle. Then feed up a stiff wire and pull the lamp cord through. Thank you for looking, I really enjoy these.

Thank you. I have been to your websites many times and they were actually one of the first sources of inspiration that got me working with juniper. Very cool website with lots of great information. Thanks again.
