These are the tools I use to carve bone and some of the objects I have carved. Since this video I now use the Shofu high speed carving tool and this dremel 4000. I found using both works well with some of the larger projects I have worked on.

    Your using your phone for your videos is cool . . but have you considered a “real” video camera? It? may be on my end but the audio is very low. God bless bubba.

    You have? done some awesome work. I spoke a bit soon I guess about the phone video and you mentioned using your Computer camera but you also said you were going to get some “better” video equiptment and that would be great. For one so talented it would really make a difference in your presentation. Great work . . .I love it all!

    Mike, thanks for sharing your knowledge on bone-carving. I am wondering what the brand name is on the dremal and if there are any dremals you don’t recomend. Also, when carving deer antlers is there a soft spot in the middle that you shouldn’t try? to carve? Thanks for any info shared

    oh, I almost forgot to ask. Do you sell? your work strictly on ebay or do you sell from your shop?

    @DomSubmissiveKitty I just picked up a Dremel for myself? today, and I got mine at Home Depot it was about $65 for the dremel and $25 for the handheld extension, Really anyplace that sells tools will most likely have a dremel. Hope this helped!

    Hi Mike, just watching your bone carving videos. My question to you is; how do you finish, seal, your bone work when you are done carving it? Your work is very nice. I have only done? a lot of woodworking carving before but because of you I am thinking of bone now.

    I just wanted to clarify for some of the folks who have commented, that his Dremel IS an actual Dremel. That is the brand name. There are other, much cheaper rotary tools on the market, but you DO get what you pay for. I was delighted to see that he uses the same Dremel model that I do (Dremel 4000). I got mine on eBay? in a big kit for $180. That’s a great deal for everything I got, and it is worth the investment.

    I ask my dentist for their dental bits. ? They’ve got some great sharp and real fine bits that they’ve always kicked down when I ask.

    Hey Mike! I really like your carvings. I just started working in metals/stones/bones/feathers in a major way. I am wondering where you get your bone, esp. deer antlers. I know no hunter types so I have no access to the mateial. I ordered some fake bone, expecting it to? have some visual texture to it,but it’s just flat white!!
