- Anyone turned this beautiful wood. I was given a small tree trunk and
asked to make a pen. I understand that it is very rare and on the
endangered list? Is it toxic? Comments please.
- I have managed to get my hand on some deer horn. I was told that it was
from 1 year old deer. I haven't turned horn before - any hints?
- I have turned some horn, both deer and elk. I find that you must
drill slowly clearing the chips often, clamp the horn in such a way
as to make it rock solid, as always the sharper the tools the better,
and wear nose plugs. The horn stinks like a hundred wet dogs in a VW
Bug. Horn changes in color as you turn. You never know what you will
end up with until you are done. Good luck.
