Antler project


Meatball

Recommended Posts

My buddies are adding a kitchen drawer to the deer camp. I had a set of antlers I took from a road kill I found on I-88. 1/4" eyebolts on the one side. And I drilled 1/4" holes in the bases. Going to use a piece of threaded rod and an acorn cap nut to dress it up on the finished drawer. Just stuck the miss matched hardware in to get their opinions.

you can go to say Fastenal and grab matte black allen head cap screws or lags. cap screws aka bolts really would probably be best and more durable. i'd keep the color matched if you can.

you could maybe drill and possibly tap the antler to except a lag from within the drawer that way the one fastener will be hidden.

Using a threaded insert like this works for antler or horn; used them on both to make handles for custom work. Dont need the full depth, 5-6 threads are enough and then can grind off flush. I do used a little Devcon epoxy, but super glue type adhesive is OK too. I use a screw inserted flush to bottom with a jamb nut to act as driver; keeps adhesive from getting in the internal threads. 10x32 is a standard knob/pull thread in the industry and can then use a standard break away screw for length on install. Brad point drill works well on antler; forstner is OK too but limited to diameter choice.
