  • 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.

        Celtic knot-shamrock cross
        by Ennobee
        My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

        Hi Jim.
        glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

        Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

        Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
        by jim_mex
        I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
