Awesome, blows my mind, what a beautiful combination. Being a woodworker and a Deer hunter wheee doggy you rang my bell! The root is strikingly Beautiful and the HIGH scoring Bucks on top, well, I would just like to see one of that size in the wild(I have seen the in the pen) much less wearing my tag.

Tim and Candy,
Every piece you create is a masterpiece! Is that set of mounts actually displayed in someone’s home? It must be massive!

Thank you all for the comments and compliments. It is very pleasing and humbling. We enjoy working with the juniper and keeping the free form movement to all of it. We admire those of you who can work with straight lines, angles and glue…. we are at a loss when it come to that type of work.
Yes this piece went to a customer in Texas who will have it displayed in his trophy room.
