Using antlers

Not sure where else this would go, so I placed it here. I was wondering if anyone out there knows a company or simply a local craftsman who uses antlers for building unique items. I happen to have a decent collection of antlers I've saved over the years that are awaiting a "good idea". I've given some away, but also would like to do something special for me or my family with them.

My wife did have a very unique wooden mug made for both myself and a friend of mine that uses one side (each) of a 4 or 6 pnt rack as a handle for the mug. It's really neat looking, but one only needs.... so many mugs. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Yes

One of my buddies was

One of my buddies was visiting a friend of his family during Thanksgiving and saw where the had drawer pulls made out of whitetail antlers. He didn't think of taking any pics so we don't know exactly how it was done, but he is going to make a return trip just to see how they did it. It sounds like a neat idea/use for anlers. I'll post some pics if/when I get them.

The 2 most common things I

The 2 most common things I see made out of antlers are either knife handles, or chandeliers/lamps.  I am not sure about the lamps, but i do know someone who makes the knife handles.

Some of the stuff they do looks really nice!
