hollowing out antlers for lighting

    That mule deer antler would of been a piece of cake with no holes to fix, easy. Now that antler with the multiple tines would be impossible to run the wires without exit holes to fix. I would have to see that to believe it unless you have a "MIRACLE TOOL" that follows the softer center.

    This may be easier to believe.

    Look, I try to think of myself as having an analytical mind and nothing you've shown makes it any easier for me to believe. You see, sometime back, a pretty smart guy by the name of Isaac Newton came up with these three silly little laws of motion. The very first one says that in an inertial frame of reference, an object either remains at rest or continues to move in a straight line at a constant velocity UNLESS ACTED UPON BY A FORCE.

    Certainly drilling at different axes is possible with special drills controlled by radio telemetry, but showing me a picture of a hollow antler is hardly going to convince me that an average person, with average and accessible handtools is going to drill out an antler without breaking through at some point.

    Now I'm assuming you have some proprietary method of pulling this off OR you're running a pretty good con job of implying that regular DIY guys could do this. Even if they could, I'm sure it's neither very time efficient nor cost effective and would quickly wear off the novelty.

    That doesn't tell me anything I didn't already know. It's rather obvious that you have a proprietary process. I never said it couldn't be done, I said it couldn't be done with the methods and tools a regular DIY person could come up with. And there are things that can't be done. I've never heard of anyone striking a safety match on a warm marshmallow.
