Antler restoration.

Here's a photo of my latest carving project.

Late Friday afternoon I was contacted by a gentleman who lives locally, asking if I might carve a pair of antlers in hardwood, to replace those that have been damaged and lost, from the head of a red deer stag.
The stag is mounted on top of a one hundred and fifty year old cuckoo clock, made in the Black Forest in S.W. Germany.

The stag's head minus antlers, you see to the right of the photo. The one remaining original broken antler you see in the foreground. Behind are the new hand carved replacement antlers. The block of hardwood to the rear of the photo is how the new antlers began life this morning.
