Looks like some very good antler Tim. Just a little lathe time and lots of antler chips everywhere!

 Put some stain on one to see what it looked like. Now comes the work.

I dont think I have ever tried turning horn before.   How does it compare to wood for turning?

Can you show a picture of a tip like those shown setup in your lathe?

Thanks

 I think it turns better/easier, small sharp tools make it easier. This may show you how the tips are set up and made. Any more questions just ask.
