i have the best students ever! i got this and another piece of antler (with no head bits attached) from a student. she knows i’ve been trying to get some antler for experiments and apparently has the antler hook-up so yay!
Are you looking to work it? I’ve read that the best way to do that is soaking the antler for a while in boiling/water. Unless you’re using power tools, then I guess it doesn’t matter as much.
