    I've had a couple of pm's about this, so thought I'd post a couple of pictures-mostly I give them away as gifts, so I never have many around. . .but here's what I have on hand this morning: (I love using antlers for handles if I can get them)

    pudding stone from Drummond Island, MI as base

    Lovely work. I've tried it with the very long needles from trees in Yosemite Valley, took a long time to finish, but wasn't as nice as yours. You did a very good job on this, the deer anthers were a nice touch I've never seen before. I have seen some with reddish polished Buck Brush handles from the high Sierras, but those were Indian made.

    I love them. I took a class on chair caning once. Didn't really like it. Is this similar?

    I love these! Clever use of natural resources that would otherwise be thrown away.

    Hi,

    Your baskets are amazing. Where did you take the class? What do you use to weave the needles? I may have some deer antlers for you. My husband uses them to turn pens. The small ones don't work for him.

    Nice and rustic,love the look. I couldn't make myself use one except for decoration. The horn handles are just so neat looking.
