Plaques for Antler Mounting Having just set up shop, I would like to make some plaques on which to mount deer antlers myself and my sons have accumulated over the last several years (hunting is my second favorite thing to do). We have a 12, 11, two 8’s and a six point to mount. I never could see paying $300-$400 to mount a deer’s head, just way too much to spend on mounting when there are so many TOOLS to buy! Anyway, I would like to make the plaques out of 3/4 inch something, that is, something with an Oak or Cherry laminate. I have considered using MDF and plywood. MDF seems like it will router real nice on the edges, but I am not sure how well it can hold the screws for the antlers, they will be pretty heavy. Plywood will hold the screws, but I am not sure how to get a nice edge without gluing some sort of banding on the edges – something I don’t want to do. Is there a router bit which can do what I am looking for? Please, any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Have you considered gluing up some solid panels of oak or cherry and template routing them to shape. You could then put any profile on them you wanted.

Well, yes, I have. However, I have to admit that the reason I don’t want to do it this way is because, somewhere in the back of my mind, I am considering offering this as a service (for sale) to other hunters who have the same need. So, if I do, I won’t be able to spend all the time needed to glue up solid panels. That is why I am ‘stuck’ on plywood or MDF. It would be much quicker to produce 20, 40, 60, or more panels this way, and I could show them how “nice” mine look on plywood/MDF.
