Here is our 3rd taxidermy pedestal. The pedestal is juniper, we cut the base out of burled pine and inlay it with gaspiete.

It was finished with polycrylic.

Stands 40” tall 24×30

This weighs about 165lbs

Amazing piece. It must be a tremendous amount of work to strip, sand, and finish such a gnarly juniper log. The inlays really bring it together.

What a great contrast in the woods. Another fine piece. What will be mounted on it?

Who needs anything mounted on it? It’s a work of art on its own.

Charlie’s right, it is a fantastic piece of art and I’m sure will put whatever is mounted to it to shame!

It is simply amazing! Where did you ever find wood like that? You wouldn’t happen to have some left over, would you?
