In preparation for the upcoming hunting season I though I’d post a picture of the wall plaque that I made with last years whitetail that I took with my bow.

The two woods used are black walnut and maple. I glues them together, cut out the arrow head shape, routered the edge, then used the front wheel on my floor belt sander and my oscillating sander to give the edge of the arrow head it’s “chiseled” look. I left material on the top of the arrowhead and routered an opening for the picture. It’s to small in the picture to see but I wood burned in the date that the buck was taken just below the picture. Then I finished it with poly and added the leather wrap at the base of the arrowhead.

Hope this gives you hunters an idea for your mounts this year, good luck and stay safe.
Mike

Beautiful job on the mount! It is that time of year. Thanks for getting me a nudge to climb a few trees.
