FAQ

Where do you get all your antlers from?

Deer, elk and moose shed their antlers each year in late winter or early spring and then grow new ones. We shed hunt each year picking up the antlers that are naturally dropped by the deer, elk and moose. We also partner with other shed hunters to purchase the antlers they find each year to keep a continuous supply of antlers. No animals were harmed in the creation of these products.

Do you use only real antlers in your creations?

We use high grade naturally real shed antlers to build our creations. We do not use reproduction or cast resin antlers in our creations. Using real antlers is truly an art as they are all different shapes and sizes. It takes many antlers to find the right fit when creating product. It is like a puzzle getting everything to fit. The end result is a truly one of a kind piece of art that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

Do you buy antlers?

Antler and Wood Creations is always on the lookout for additional antler sources. If you or a friend have antlers you would like to sell, we would be interested in hearing from you. Send us an email or give us a call to discuss further.

How do you assemble your antlers?

All products containing multiple antlers are screwed together and then artistically patched to conceal the holes. Our customers are constantly amazed that they aren't able to see any imperfections in the antler creations. Each antler is cleaned, sealed and blended with other antlers to bring out the natural beauty of each product when finished.

Are the wires hidden in your lamps and chandeliers?

The wires are all concealed within the antlers and the places where it is attached and constructed are virtually invisible. We take great pride in our ability to artistically mask our holes that are created when running wire and screwing the fixture together. Only UL Approved components are used in constructing lighting fixtures.
