    Tonight's DIY: antler toggles





    Decided to make these after seeing then in a PIF. Lesson learned:I need a new Dremel.

    Awesome and inventive! What do they weigh?
    When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change, you literally create your reality.

    With this crowd, I shoulda weighed 'em...I'll do that in just a little bit (when I get up the gumption to head back out back), but they're not particularly heavy. If you're counting grams, you probably wouldn't want to carry them (in favor of sticks or something along the trail).

    Nice,

    We have about 50 sets of horns laying around.
    Might have to do that.
