Had some antler pieces left after making up some keyrings for a mate. Used the large bit as a bearing block for a bowdrill spindle and the smaller bits for some more keyrings.

Very nice.

How'd you get the grey color?

That was just the natural colour of the antler mate.
To answer the previous questions ...I used a 10mm drill to start the hole and finished it off with a knife making sure to leave a good shoulder for the spindle . If you go too far yes the spindle will eat into the softer and pourous inner.
