    Antlers

    I have come by a pair of beautiful Deer Antlers only small still attached to the skull. Now what to do with them....i'm thinking i might gloss them and attach to a plaque/shield. Suggestions? If i was to remove them off the skull would i be likely to break them?

    No you wouldn't break them. They are really tough and can make brilliant walking stick handles or bag, jewellery hanging rails. The skull is not much use unless you like the luck if it? How big are they? About a foot long each ? How many branches does each have? If you cut the antler into short lengths about 2inches, you can drill a hole through them and make them into toggles for a coat or bag or even smaller buttons. If they are about 2 foot long with say 2 to 3 branches each, they are worth about 12 to 15 for the pair to bushcraft, knife makers.

    Probably about a foot with two branches, don't think i could cut them up will most likely paint them and attach to a piece of wood.
