Wow that's awesome, were the antlers attached to the skull plate or did you use some sort of shed connector? What did you use for filler under the felt? How did you attach the rope trim at the base of the antlers?

Looks good and by no means is the below link meant to take away from your work. Just showing that the kits are available delivered to your door for what you spent. I have used these kits and done my moose and caribou antlers. I did go to the fabric store to get fabric other than red so I guess it was not completely a "to my door step" kit, but in general the kits are not that expensive.
Again nice job!
Limon32. First the skull plate as in tact I just had to cut it down a bit and secure it to a base board that ended up being covered in the leather in the end. The filler, well after watching youtube videos I ended up using pillow stuffing and it worked great. Used a heavy duty staple gun to secure the bottom of the leather the started stuffing and stapling as I went along. The used a hot glue gun to secure the decorticative rope around the antler base and another black rope where the leather attaches to the finished board to help get rid of the gap. This was my first mount job and if I were to do it all over again would have done a few things different. First I would have counter sunk the bolts holding the antler base to the finished based wood as they do protrude out the back of the finished board. And that made mounting them interesting. Second I would have bought a bigger finish back board as it's a little small.
Thanks to to all the others for the kinds words of my first mount job.
Lookin good, hope that you are able to do more of these!
