Cool! I saved claws from my first bear for necklaces and I have my skull on the same pedestal. That's a good idea for my next one. I like the coin too.

Charles in Charge:

What is the procedure you follow for polishing the claws and spurs? Looks very nice....

Are you just gluing them on the panel after?

R: Use the "Search Forums" tab above the Big Game Forum page and keyword "Polishing Bear Claws". The complete procedure is shown on the video! I just did what he did! Good luck! C

PS: Just a small amount of Gorilla Glue on each claw!

Very nice Charlie! Way cool!

With your good retirement investments, I see you splurged & went with a Tooney instead of just a Looney:>)

Thanks! I know what to do with the next one I get!

Nice. Oak is hard to beat for simplistic beauty. God Bless

Very, very nice display! Did you polish the rest of the claws to, for some other art work?

I took the center out of a Toony and embedded it into a rifle bolt handle.

'Course the Toony only adds about a $1.47 value to your plaque. lol

07-Jul-16
Ambush: I'm doing the other claws now. Retirement work never ends:)

The Tooney might be worth $1.47 now but if Hillary is elected it could go to $10.40:)

THANKS again, Guys!

Charlie, our quarter has a caribou on it, so there is another theme.

And our nickel has a beaver, but you better keep that trophy display to yourself.

I kept some coins from RSA and one has a Kudu on it, which will be incorporated into that mount.
