Picture of DIY: Antler Mount Lamp
This is a step by step instruction on how to create a unique antler mount that will double as a beautiful lamp. These instructions will combine a DIY lamp project with professional style antler plaque mounting techniques. Typical antler lamps are constructed of shed antlers from multiple deer that have no meaning to the buyer/builder. These instructions will show you how to take a single full set of antlers from one of your past hunting trips and turn it into a lamp that will have meaning and memories associated with it. It will also be different from all of your friends typical style deer mounts. Personally, I have never seen anyone mount deer antlers this way. This is an original idea I came up with myself and I was very pleased with how it turned out. I hope the instructions are helpful. If anything isn't explained clearly enough, feel free to ask a question in the comments section.
