work with antler?
Years ago, I bought a lot of antler at yard sales and flea markets when ever I could pick it up cheap. ( lived in Virginia then) Over the years I made things from the antler. Belt buckles, buttons, powder measures, priming flasks etc. Even turned a few napkin rings from Moose. Of the spatulated antler I acquired, some pieces had very thin solid layers over the pith and other had very thick solid over the pith. One in particular once cut and buffed took on a beautiful translucent tortoise shell amber color. I long ago used that up and never saved a piece. Now I can't seem to find another piece like it. I have examined caribou, fallow deer and even a moose shed, they just are not the same. The stuff I am referring too, was not as brittle when cut and it cut easily with a diamond grit hole saw. Any body may know what other type of antler it may have been?
