  • Antlers

    I have a couple of elk antlers i would like to make something, but i have a couple of questions.
    Has anyone done anything with antlers or is it to hard of a material?
    What speed should i use to cut them?

    I don't have any direct experience with antlers, but you must remember they are biological and I would wear mask, glasses and possible gloves to deal with the bone dust.

      Im not sure of much you can do as far as scrollsawing on elk antler. It does turn nicely on a lather, many people turn some really nice pens of antler. Generally, its just the tips that are used, as the thicker parts can be very porous and not user friendly. Be warned though, it can really stink awful when cutting and drilling. For scrolling, try trading some elk antlers for a nice moose antler, they are great pieces for scrolling scenes in.
