    I just checked ebay for Caribou Antlers. They have plenty, but way too expensive. If you were to consider the waste you would have, it is almost as high as the Ivory, if not higher. Saw one set that was $1,200.00. To rich for my blood.
    I am not sure how much of the thickness is usable. Usually in the center of the antlers it gets really porous, and reaches out toward the surface. When the surface is sanded off, it is best not to see these pours. I would just have to hold one in my hand to see if it would work, but at these prices, this is not going to happen. :D
    Thanks for the suggestion.
