  • Antlers horns Bones

    Does any one know of a good supplier that sells
    Antlers, Horns, or Bones.
    I know treeline does but are there any more.Hopefully 1 that will allow me to mail them a check or money order and not want me to pay on line with a credit card.

    Do a search on Ebay for antlers...very often you will find people auctioning large lots of them...check often as they change all the time.

        If you live in an area where there is big game hunting you might want to check out the local meat processor. Unless the antlers are going to be used for a trophy, they are usually glad to get rid of them.

            Wayne..I don't know about Texas mesquite, but Arizona mesquite when sanded and finished looks just like bone! I just finished a mesquite cane and I am amazed, I don't think you could tell it from bone unless you really looked close! just a thought!

              Dave, How does the mesquite carve? And( full of questions,well full of something), have you used the super glue gel in making a carving area stronger? Do you brush on the super glue in the areas you want stronger.

              Thanks in advance for your response!
              Safety first, then enjoy carving! Ken Caney, Ks

                the mesquite carves really well...I was surprised, most of the trees here are hard as nails, but not the mesquite..as for the super glue, I don't use the gel for hardening, I use the regular super glue, the liquid, in fact I just put some on the beak of an eagle on a walking stick to toughen it up..I put in on right from the little bottle. I really don't know if thats the best way or even the best kind of super glue, but thats what I have been doing

                  Where did you find a piece of mesquite straight enough to make a cane? I have been wanting one for several years. TonyB

                    lots of it here, not straight but straight enough for a cane or walking stick.

                      Good idea looking for antler a meat processer. But before you do that, you might want to check with your state's Department of Wildlife (or whatever they call it) to find out what kind of deer (or elk) are in your state. ??? Here in Kentucky we only have whitetail deer. You cant barely do anything with those racks. Also keep in mind that the really big racks will probably be kept by the hunter. Oh, and your probably at the end of deer season so the pickins might be a bit slim. One place you might look is a knifemaker supply. They might have some slabs for knife handles. Hope this helps.

                      P.S. Beware! I can't tell you about horns of bones, but antler stinks to high heavens if you cut it to quick. Smells like burnt hair :P
                      Carving is the art of taking a block of wood and cutting off anything that doesn't look like a carving.

                        What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                        I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                        FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                        Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                        I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
