A buddy of mine hunts and has me mount his stuff.
The first two photos are of the most recent, the others I threw in because I thought I’d use the leftover photo space.
I do not do the bead work on the Indian bead pieces, I pick those up at the craft store. I do the other bead and leather and feather stuff though.
Thought I’d throw these into my projects because it’s something I do. Hope you enjoy….............

Very nice work – is that walnut you’re using? Love the arrowhead shaped base.

Thanks guys, yes that’s a 12×12 piece of walnut someone gave me. Really nice chunk. I usually use walnut, like it a lot. Never found a full piece so nice before. Usually have to glue some together.

I agree, there is no finer wood to work in my mind, than Walnut.

Funny Randy, One of the guys I mount for has a hard time bringing his in the house. He has to keep them in one room, nowhere else. Thanks Roman….........................
