Use a hacksaw to cut a section of antler roughly 1 inch long and 1 inch in diameter. (We made quick work of the task by using a reciprocating saw).
Clamp the section in a vise and drill out the center of the antler with a 3/4-inch bit. If the edges of the antler are rough enough to snag your scarf, file them down with sand paper.
If you’d like to customize your scarf slide, file down a smooth surface on one side of the antler. We used a belt sander, though hand sanding works just as well.
Wood burn your brand or initials (it’s helpful to pencil in your design first). Alternatively, you can adhere gemstones, conchos, or other decorations to the smoothed area with a strong adhesive.
Pull the tails of your wild rag through the hole and snug up to tighten and secure.
