Cigar pen made from a mule deer antler shed.
The band around the middle is a tag used to track the migration of ducks known as a “Duck Band”.
This was commissioned by one of my co workers that is an avid deer and duck hunter.
The pen kit is an Apprentice Cigar in gun metal grey from Craft Supplies USA.
I chose the largest diameter pen kit I could find. I still had to reduce the size of the duck band quite a bit by opening it up and cutting it down then reshaping it around a drill bit.
I turned the antler to the basic size and shape then cut a tenon the same size as the drill bit that I used to size the band. I repainted the lettering with black fingernail polish then sanded the band with 600 grit paper, then gave it a clear coat of lacquer.
The antler is finished with 15 coats of CA.
