Carving Mammoth Ivory?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Has anyone here carved mammoth ivory? I have a small project to do for an anniversary gift, and have no idea where to start for tooling. I dont want to ruin a chunk of material by choosing the wrong equipment. 

 

Thanks!

Glad I read the name on the front of the book before I made an arse of myself criticizing someone of copyright violation.  Thanks again for your generosity, Tom.

Thanks you indeed!  I believe I have also benefited from your generosity with engraving tutorials.

So the stuff was a breeze to work with. The traditional 14th anniversary gift is Ivory- my wife’s truck got totaled last year, nicknamed Ellie(like an Elephant, big and grey) got her a 2500 diesel to replace it, which her dad nicknamed Jurassic Ellie. I figured a pair of mammoth tusks to hang from the rear view mirror would be fitting. 14k white gold wire and beads.
