A friend killed a bobcat and had it mounted, he need a base for it. He wanted a 30” tall, octagon, raised panel base, I thought that was just to big of a box for a 30 lb cat. So I talked him into this style of base, I saw this table online and thought that could work well for this project….can’t wait to see the cat on it…
Made from wormy Ash, general gel stain Java & Candle light, spray lacquer Thanks

Nice adaptation! I think it looks better than the online version.

Nice work, if you get a chance to snap a pic with the mount on top, I’d like to see it. As a hunter myself, taxidermy intrigues me…..

I never understood the taxidermy thing… or the hunting for sport…. but the base is a wonderful design.
