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!

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.
