    What to do with all the antlers.....

    Decided I needed to start making inroads into all the antlers I have stashed above the garage. I have a few sets that I've mounted on the wall for sentimental reasons, but as I don't have a baronial hall I don't have space for all of them.

    So far I've used antlers for stickmaking, knife handles, fishing priests, etc but still not making any real headway. So yesterday I decided to knock up some zip pulls, a corkscrew and a bottle opener:



    But what do you do with all the antlers you've accumulated?

    Funnily enough iv'e just been to get some dog grub from my local pet shop and they're selling bits of antler in there for dogs to chew on at £10 to £12 a time
    might go round again and see if they want any more at that price

    I got the bottle opener from Loch Ness Origins (Custom Made Sgian Dubhs, Wedding Rings and Jewellery from the Scottish Highlands) and the corkscrew was from a cheap stainless "waiters friend", but I've just ordered five of these: http://bit.ly/117PJmY so will give them a try.
