1

Laser cut the file

On a 40 watt laser cutter I used the settings 20 speed and 100 power. All the lines are vector cuts.

2

Heat bend the antlers

Place the acrylic piece over a strip heater and wait for the plastic to warm. When the plastic looks ready to bend (about 3 minutes) bend the antler to the desired angle. Wait until it cools.

3

Mount on the wall

Pick the appropriate screws for the application of your Buck Hook ( jewelry and small items might require regular screws while wall anchors will be better for heavier use).
Mount the hook in the desired spot. Enjoy!
