I put this piece together to display the mule deer antlers I’ve gotten over the years. I finally had an even amount with 4 large and 2 small. The plaques they were on before didn’t match and the leather was different colors as well. The slab is from a tree I cut down on our gold mine claim high in the Colorado Rockies. Finish is Watco danish oil and Deft laquer. I hung it with flush mount brackets from Rockler which work well.

It looks like you got to show some of the red fungus as well. Found some spots, wish I had whole trees of it.
