    I have been asked by a client to use a pair of greater kudu horns to make a floor lamp. The core of the horns were removed in Africa before being shipped to the states. I am researching how to fill the lower portion of the horns to make an anchoring system to securely fasten the horns to the wood base of the floor lamp.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.
  2. I would use bondo in the horns then screw from the bottom of the base into the bondo will secure it just fine. that's my thought, good luck!

  3. I would carve a piece of wood for an insert. YOU can put metal threads int he wood and and it will be way stringer than bondo.

    LordRusty If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Use a slow setting urethane resin to fill the horns. Urethane resin is fairly lightweight, and can have filler added to reduce the amount needed. You can then drill and tap a hole for a bolt to secure it to a base.
