Antler Pen Blank Pre-Drilled for 3/8'' Tube
Antler Pen Blank Pre-Drilled for 3/8'' Tube

Antler is a wonderful turning material, but figuring out how to hold the irregularly shaped blank in place for drilling and cutting to length can be difficult. That's why we're offering these blanks in pre-drilled form so you can minimize the risk of blowout or a lopsided blank. The ends have been squared off, but the tubes will need to be glued in place and the ends trimmed flush with the brass tubes in your chosen pen kit. They are drilled for a 3/8'' tube, and will fit many of our Bolt-Action Pen Hardware Kits (#55946, sold separately).

great idea !
I have been making Bullet Pens with Antler for eight plus years
It is far more convenient to have the Antler predrilled....Safer Too.

Pre-Drilled Antler
Finding pre-drilled antler was a life saver for me as I'm still pretty new to pen turning. I'm glad I bought mine from the local store to get the exact piece I wanted...vice getting whatever was put in the mail.

predrilled antler pen blanks
these are great. no need to worry about drilling out the side and ruining the antler. some don't like turning antlers because of the smell but growing up on a farm it's definitely better than some odors. done 4 like this and try to leave a portion unturned so that the true antler shows.

I was a little unsure about turning antler. Having the holes predrilled was great. Glued my tube in and started turning. It was a little difficult to get it evened out but once that was done it turned beautifully. One of my favorite pens. I gave it as a retirement gift.
First time turning  antler. Turned out great! Gave it as a retirement gift

Pre-drilled, I've attempted to make a pen with antler material and did not have any luck I am hoping this predrilled blank is drill enough off center so that the outside grain shows.
