I am about at far from an anit-hunter as one could possibly get, so that's not the reason your post didn't sit well with me. I can see many reasons that one would make their own antlers for a project. Possibly needing multiple sets that are the same, or maybe a real set couldn't be found that fit the build design. We are all woodworkers here, and get some of our ideas by other woodworkers that share their projects and ideas. That's the reason your post bothered me. Posts like that will stop people from sharing their projects in fear of criticism.

If you are in need of flattening a work piece, don't rule out hand planes. They are easy to learn how to use and are great to have around if a piece is to large to fit in your planer, or in this situation a piece that doesn't have one flat side.

Haaaaaa!!! Ahhh, goodness, you guys fight almost as good as us girls!!

Ummm, sure, we like guns! :) But I mostly use it to hang my purse and my measuring tapes! I'm sorry you don't think his antlers are "cool", why hang real ones...when you could hang wood ones?!!!! This is a woodworking forum...right?!

So, if you didn't think that was cool, then you really won't like this either! But I think it's the SWEETEST, COOLEST, JIG EVER!!!!

That's right, a Foot Kam Press...Presser! Haaa, I don't even know what you'd call it? But I wanted some kind of thing I could put my snaps on material easier without using my arm, and having my hands free to work.

So, my sweet dad built my dream for me! He inset the Press so that when I lay my material down on the table it's all flat and nice. He made a hidden little compartment for all my tools. Then he came up with the whole thing on how to make it work with my foot, which was more math than I could handle! Anyways, it works like a charm, and just like wooden antlers...I've never seen a foot press like mine before...all painted cute like a barn too!!

Thanks everyone for your kind words and stickin up for me! Haaaaa, ahhhhh I think my dad get's a good laugh when I tell him all what you guys are saying!

As for the hand planer, yes he has one of those and uses it for stuff, but he just wants OCD perfect on the bottom of his bowls. I think it is perfect already, but it has a tiny, tiny, tiny, movement, and he wants that gone! :) He said he's already come up with an idea? So we'll see I guess?

But I am thankful for all the input and ideas you guys are giving!

Thanks! :)

Thankfully this IS still America, and everyone can have their opinion. Who knows for how long though! :)
Talk to ya'll later!

That wall pic is the perfect response. Well played! And I bet those antlers don't smell like fish :D

Nice wall. Everyone should have at least 1 Nagant hanging around :) I've refinished the wood on a few for basement bars and game rooms. Fun to watch people shoot them for the first time also lol

since this thread got a bit out of hand - I would like to buck the trend and point out the fact that vursenbach did apologize for remark and folks didn't notice. I know he hit a soft spot, but consider him for just a minute. The guy is from Wyoming where everybody has piles of antlers laying around their yards. They almost consider them litter. I was on my snowshoes last winter and came across a rack and bothered to pick it up and bring it home. If versenbach had been with me, he might have busted my chops for doing so...

Now don't beat me up for this post. I originally posted on the bowls and suggested the planer sled. I don't want to offend anybody, I just want us to forgive a guy who made an off the head statement and apologized for it. We all do that from time to time. His post wasn't the only emotionally charged off the head statement in this thread.

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

Oh man, this one is sure to make your head spin!

I made three of these this weekend. Ironically, I was in the process of making them when I commented in this thread but it didn't even occur to me at the time that I was making basically the same thing you "don't get". Only mine have heads attached. You must REALLY not get mine

Why were these made. Besides the fact that one will be a gift for my dad and the other two are going up for sale: Because I can! That's why most wooden artistic/novelty items are made. The same reason you participated in the marking gauge swap when you could have just gone out and bought one.

Alright, sorry. I didn't really come to stir the skinned-over poop and make it stink again. It's just that when the connection between this topic and what I was building (they were completed yesterday) I simply could not resist
