    More ..........

    Compact Knife Key Rings turned using stabilized Elk antler.
    The Blade unscrews, turn it around and screw inside, screw on the cap and you have a key ring with a knife inside.
    Applied 6 coats of Med CA, buffed with Extra Fine Steel Wool and polished with Huts Ultra Gloss.

    I wish I had half of your talent. Nicely done
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Very nice. Did you do the stabilizing of the antler? Never heard of that before.

    Thanks guys.

    Paul,
    I got into stabilizing Knife Scales, soft woods and antler using Cactus juice, a vacuum chamber and a good vacuum pump that is sold by Curtis Seebeck at TurnTex Woodworks.
    Works great!

    I use the same system and concur 100%. I went the cheap route and use a refridge compressor I picked up for $20. It pulls 28in-mm in about 2 minutes. Lot cheaper and easier to maintain than a conventional vaccum pump.
