Something Different

Not exactly rod building or tackle craft but I figured you "crafty" people would enjoy this...

A few years ago I made an antler handled knife - heres the link: http://www.fishingminnesota.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1010652/Latest_project#Post1010652

Anyways I made something out of the other half of the rack tonight...

Yep, a custom antler handled bottle opener!

$1.50 at the store for the "cheap" 3 in 1 tool and the rack from a buck my dad killed with the bow in 1971...

A little brains and brawn, and i ended up with this

Hack-sawed the antler from the skull and cut to length. Then dremel tooled the end to fit the opener...

Some 2-part epoxy and she's done. One of a kind and original. I'll be makeing some more of these as they'll make neat gifts...

nice idea - I have made ice rods using them too. Amazing how soft the inside of the antler really is....
