Well, I wanted a armrest for my Fireside Practice Banjo and was never impressed with the standard Arm Rest Design, as i just don't think they are very Functional, so I finally came up with my own Simple Idea. Using a Deer Antler with Just the right shape & size to cradle my forearm. I Swear, his thing is really comfortable. It Cradles and supports my Forearm very nicely . I have to say, I think it looks kinda cool too. Certainly gets People's attention in a hurry and gets the conversation flowing too,
Finished Project With Deer Head Wood Burning and 2 Antlers,Total Cost, Just 1 Buck
