I milled the juniper board with my alaskan chainsaw mill attachment, ran it through the planer a few times to get the thickness I wanted. Then shaped the edges with my flap wheel grinder, and went through a few hours of sanding from 120/220/320/400/steel wool. The wood was a little too “new” looking so I took a torch to it to give it a little contrast. Finished with 3 coats of Teak oil, then 3 coats of polycrylic. I coated the horse shoes with a spray lacquer.

Nice looking. How did you attach the antlers?

Very nice, I really like the grain on the juniper.

I drilled through and countersunk 3 screws through the back of the board into the antler. I ran the screws through, then took them back out and filled the screw holes in the antler with super glue to try and add strength. Then I coated the surface area of the antler with liquid nails glue and screwed it back in place.

Sounds like that would help a lot strength wise. Good work!

Thanks…it felt pretty solid. I was worried about pull out, but I think the combo of screws and glue will hold up pretty good.
