A little something I made my wife, Lana, for Christmas. This is the buck she arrowed in 2017. The shed is from the deer I arrowed in 2012. The lamp nut, or burr is from a shed she found years ago in central ok. I got this idea from the web. Can't wait to give it to her. :)

Easy project if you're somewhat handy with tools. All you need is a lamp kit, the lamp all thread (about two ft), lamp shade, either an aluminum arrow or piece of aluminum tubing (what I used) to cover all thread, shed antler and a skull mount. Bought most of the supplies at lowes, shade too.

The hardest part is the alignment part and drilling the holes in the skull. The rest is simple measuring and putting the parts together.

I actually used real fletching and painted the "arrow" with hammered brown spray paint. Some people actually cover it with an aluminum arrow with fletch, I didn't like that look. I also bored out the burr and glued the nut to hold the lamp shade, in it.

Thanks fellas! I took it over to my inlaws, now they want one. I told them they better get to hunting.

If anyone needs help building one, I'll help guide you through it. Here's a few more pics...

Or did you decide to just cut this year’s antlers up for knife handles:-0

Thank you all very much. I think if I retire early, this will be something I will do as a hobby. Not shoulder mounts or taxidermy, but unique type stuff with European mounts. I really enjoy creating and doing this type of craft.

Merry Christmas all!

Thank you all very much. I didn't do much, the hard part was killing the deer. Here's its final destination over by the workout ball and guitar that never get used. Lol
