After turning a pretty nice (in my humble opinion) slimline pen from a whitetail deer antler, I was curious to see how I could use the remaining portion of the antler for another project. Never being one to let anything go to “waste”, I took the butt ends of the antlers and grooved them using my dado jig – CAUTION – please be extremely careful doing this as it doesn’t allow much margin for error and you dont want to lose a finger! I pre-drilled the base of the antlers and the tip of the antler for the pen-holder and used brass wood screws though the oak base.
I have had several offers from buddies wanting to purchase this, but I like it so much I’m having a tough time parting with it.
