Counting my mounts before they are even killed but I'm hunting South Africa in August and I want to do some pedestal mounts. Ready made ones are outrageous. Anyone know of plans available to build your own?

I am waiting on my sable to come back from Africa and am also interested in making a pedestal for it, hard to put a shoulder mount on the wall without a very sharp turn.

How high are your ceilings? I have a 51 inch Kudu shoulder mount on a 32" six sided base with about 4" to spare in 8 foot ceilings

If you think that may work for you I can take some pics and try and upload. Please understand I am not a computer savvy guy. So try is all I can do.

My buddy and are heading there in august as well and I too am counting chickens before their hatched lol. I was fortunate enough to take a great oryx in Texas and hoping for a gemsbok while in SA so I am interested as well in the pedestal option to put both together. Let me know how you make out on the build.

I thought granite would be neat on my Kudu top- but even having the holes for the rods drilled was not cheap- I had about $500 into building it myself

For reference this is a 54" kudu but I have 10' ceilings in my basement game room

Another idea was a pedestal of faux stone. I had a bunch of leftover after I did my walls, but man this thing is heavy.

Just saw this on FB from a friend, and my next one I'll build will be this one. I like the habitat underneath and the mount sitting on just a wood top.

This one's a little different than maybe what you're thinking of doing. I did everything myself except the mounts themselves. Very satisfying.
