Antler turns really well and there is almost no need for sanding.

In my opinion it is underused in pool cues.
And they smell great!
Nothing smells better than drilling out the marrow.

I have made several cues using deer antler. I personally love the hit and the look. In my hands it feels much like ivory but a little harder. A friend from Maine is going back home and is going to find me some Moose antlers. I'm eager to try that out on a cue.

Thanks for all the comments and info guys. Do any of you have photos of butts and joints of finished cues using horn.

I was going to just do phenolic but have been kicking around this idea.
deer horn i haven't had good luck with. Elk antler however has been very good to me though...

Horn and antler are two different materials, antler is bone and horn is mainly keratin.
