DIY Euro Pedestal MountContributors to this thread:

So after our hunt in New Mexico last year being successful. And then dad filling a tag. I wanted to do something special for him. I dabble with making euro mounts on white tails. And dad wanted his bull turned into a euro on a pedestal. I came up with an idea. And luckily my second job allows me access to some wood engraving tools. The base was meant to be just 1 2” piece off a tree trunk. Unfortunately what I had didn’t have a big enough diameter to support it all and since it was already engraved. I just cut another slice and attached below. I wanted the engraved part to be dark and the slab lighter, but unfortunately turned out darker and very had to see in the pics. Anyways. What do ya think? I think it turned out ok.
Best I could get of the engravings.
Dads corner is filling up..
Anyways. Hope everyone is doing good this summer and ready for September! Take Care!
Pretty sharp! what's the base?
All the wood is Black walnut. Except the pine board the skull sits on.
Looks real nice!!
Looks great, I'm sure your dad is pleased
Thanks! He is very happy with it. Here is a better pic of what I drew up and engraved into the base.
Wow! Black Walnut. Pretty special. And for your Dad. Super special!
