One of our members did a christmas tree with them last year and shared a few pics on here. Can't remember who though. (I think it was this site)....turned out awesome. If I remember right he didnt drill any of them. I think he just intertwind them together.....about 5' or 6' feet tall.
Going on a moose hunt!!!  WOOHOO...free lodging!!

I've made a couple things, here's a lamp I did last year. I really took my time to make it as nice as it could be. The drilling is the hard part, I broke a bit and almost got it stuck, Getting the color of the putty right is key. I think this one would sell but I'm not ready to part with it.

Maybe next time I'll make a powder measure for the muzzleloader or something like that. Nice trinkets.

Good work guys! I would like to make a cribbage board if I'm lucky enough to find a large elk shed. ;)

you can get creative with cribbage boards. That is my dads favorite thing to make. Here is one he made for me out of two deer sheds. He likes to use elk and moose sheds though. He made one for UncleBuck on this site too. That was out of one deer shed. Maybe he can post it.
Right on Slinger! Your Dad does some nice work! I can't wait until the elk start dropping bone!

Well here is my attempt at mounting a euro on a shedder. I didn't mount my skull straight up and down. Instead the skull follows the contour of the main beam. I meant to do that (this means I accidentally drilled the hole a little crooked) :chuckle: :chuckle:. It being crooked and all I figured it would look better in a corner. Anyways... it didn't turn out as good as Wastickslinger's, but I'm happy with it and it was good practice. Thanks for the idea Wastickslinger!

You guys make some good looking stuff out of your sheds. I don't shed hunt but I stumble upon some every now and then and they just end up in the bend collecting dust for the most part
