you made that stone head plaque?I need 2 plaques for 2 mounts i have I just have the skull caps laying in top my dresser I gotta do something with them

 

Yes, they're pretty easy to make, just a little time consuming.  Get a 12" wide pine board, trace an arrowhead design and cut it out.  Then use a rasp to give it the shape, sand and stain. 

 

The rasping takes a while to do by hand but if you like to make stuff by hand it's fun.

I saw your sketch on NJH, it was actually pretty good.  Ignore the negative comment from the muggles, they just don't understand us. wink2.gif.pagespeed.ce.JHN-tdLrvJ.gif   

 

This is a wall in my classroom that I painted.  If it makes me happy then who cares what others think.  xtongue.png.pagespeed.ic.86ZlZhEa46.png

Nice work fellas!

 

I mounted this buck and then built the pedestal. My brothers first buck...

Rusty, I also liked your plaques so much when I saw them, I made four of these based off of your design. I think Jon55nj and Beaverkill each got one. I need to make more but have to draw a new pattern since I lost the old templates I made. Maybe I can just trace the one plaque I still have.

I have done a ton of other mounts and drawings, but it's all stuff I've posted before. Even these two are old news I'm sure.
