    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.

    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.

    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 did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

    Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

    What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

    Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

    I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
