help with deer antler knife handle?

I read Here that Soaking or boiling an antler in water will soften it enough to insert a knife tang without drilling. it tells you how long to soak but not how long to boil it. i can soak it if i have to but I'd prefer the fastest way, so if anyone knows how long i should boil it i would really appreciate any info i can get. thanks in advance.
