That's a beauty! I made one myself with an antler top but found the problem was how to disguise the join where antler met shaft. I ended up just whipping over it with some rustic string.

It was yours that inspired me to give it a try Scott. It took a while to find antlers with the right kind of shape, at a price I was willing to pay.
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

I was going to ask where you got your antlers from?

Hi Scott. I got my antlers from eBay. A cheaper option but I had to wait until I saw some which looked like they would produce nice rest shapes. Obviously with a natural material you have to go with the flow a bit, but patience will pay off.

A couple more completed.

You've given me an idea for the perfect feeder rest.....another winter project

My biggest worry is that my wife ( when I'm dead ) will try to sell my fishing tackle for what I said I paid for it.
