This is my first couple of antler projects I have made. I have read that you are unable to use old weathered out antler as well as the low density area where the antler is soft and has many voids. I have found both of these to be possible if you take care on how you turn it as well as stabilizing it. I used a stabilizing method that I picked up from Russ Fairfield that utilizes CA glue and sanding to fill voids. This worked very well for me and I was able to stabilize everything and hold the impressive colors in the work.
Let me know what you think and how I can improve.
Thanks for looking,
