Antler of Steel

Recommended Posts

Here are some pics of an antler I made today. The Tines are made out of leaf spring u bolts out of semi trucks the main beam is made from some 1 1/2 round stock. Now I will have to make a matching side.

I don't really have set plans for it. It's just something I thought would be cool. So It will probiby hang in my shop or mancave. It might also end up as a display piece or for sale at some show. Could make the other one and use them as hood orniments

Now you have to make the other side and mount them to a head. I can see the skeletonized version of a head mount that would probably bring you one heck of a payday. Very cool.

The Tines are mig welded as I don't have a forge large enought to heat the whole antler. Just a note I have decided to do the other side and attempt to do the skull to mount them on. I will post pic when I get it complete the other antler shouldn't take to long but the skull will be a challenge as I've never attemped anything like that. But the you don't improve your skills if you don't try new stuff.

Nice rack!:unsure: I mean cool antler. I think you should do steel taxidermy for folks. Would last much longer than reg. mounts and be pretty cool to have your deer replicated in steel. Just a thought. :D
