I have a decent little 10pt red stag that would make a few good stalking sticks. see attached pic.
His 50th is coming up (edit, my brother in law) in less than a month, and I thought maybe someone here would offer to make him a nice stalking stick with two way piece of antler, the beam topped with ebony or similar, perhaps with a collar on the antler to stick joint and a steel or brass type cup to protect the bottom, maybe varnished? you get my drift.
Well, what I was hoping is someone could turn me out a nice stick for him before early June, in exchang for the antlers on the below trophy. Ie. i could cut them off and post. They could then use the rest of the antlers to make other sticks for sale?
Ok, might not be of interest to anyone, and I do make sticks myself, but I just don't really have the time in the next few weeks.
Maybe one can even nail in a wee brass plate with name and/or date ?? anyone done this before?
