This is an antler mount that I did on commission. My brother in-law had me make this for his boss for a Christmas present for his son. I used maple for the main board, walnut for the ring around the antlers, yellow heart for the plaque & wenge for the little plugs. I wood burned “My First Buck” on the plaque. I wanted it to look different from those that i’ve seen so I added some copper to the skull cap, that way the bone didn’t show. I also wanted to give a little extra attention to his tag, so I routed out an area on the back & covered it with some Plexiglas. I also used felt behind the walnut ring. I finished it with 2 coats of spray on poly. The outside edge was painted black & covered in black flocking. The little plugs are beveled on four sides to form a pyramid. Over all I think it turned out nice, the best part & most important, the man giving it to his son loved it. I was told that the little boy was so happy he hung it in the hallway Christmas morning. Thank for looking.
