I use a hacksaw and saw the leg just above and below the spur cap. How long is your choice. Using a toothpick and Qtip, clean out that yellow stuff in the leg piece. Thats where your string will run through when spur is dried. Then I put the spurs in borax making sure it gets inside where the yellow stuff was. Ready in a couple of weeks.

Hacksaw and then skin the leg so it's down to the bone, salt and let it dry a couple days, then sand it off so the bone is smooth.

Cut the bone above and below the spur. Just let them dry out then drill a hole down the middle of the bone for the string. I have several in a box that I will do like this someday.

the legs are hollow, no need to drill
