Picure #1 is a Red oak leaf plaque I made for my brother in law. Picture #2 is a White oak leaf plaque I made for my father in law. I forgot to take a picture of it before he mounted his antlers. Both are made out of pine, from patterns I enlarged from real leaves.

Nice job! What will the oak leaf be used for? Cool idea for the white oak leaf.

Thank you! The white oak leaf was the first one I made. My brother in law liked the idea of mounting antlers on it, but wanted a Red oak leaf for his. The red oak leaf is my favorite.

Nice work with the wood. It makes a good mount for the antlers. Might I suggest a leather cover for the skull portion of the mount to hide the screws. Wood, antler, and leather always go well together.
