Bone nuts and bridges

Posted on January 5, 2010 at 12:31pm 9 Comments

any one else tried making nuts and bridges out of beef bone ? I have found that it works great! it is way more resilient than wood or plastic for this application and cheap too if you get a shin bone at the super market you can get a ton of nuts out of it , just my thought s figured I would share
