I built this for a taxidermist to mount a deer head on.
This was a real challange to get the 221/2 angle just right
I used a frame and panel design and biscuit joinery.
The top is ressed for the mount to sit in.
My wife said it looked like a baptism stand.

Very nice joinery. Looks like another one of those teaching moments I would pull my daughter into the shop as example of “another practical example of that stupid math.” Can’t you just see her eyes roll. Anyway, good job.

It reminds me of a baptismal font, too! Will this be a head with the neck still attached? I’m just trying to picture how it will look. Anyway, great woodworking – the raised panels are terrific.

Beautiful stand, a couple of doors and this could be a dandy of a plant stand

Must be a heck of a mount to deserve a pedestal like this!

This is a wonderful piece irrespective of what it looks like or for what purpose it is going to be used for. The joinery looks good, the raised panels add a nice detail and the inset top makes it a wonderful piece.

Thanks for the post.

Like everyone else, I think the miters are outstanding. Really nice stand. I’d like to see a picture after the head is mounted.

thanks to all of these great compliments, I am working on getting a picture of the mount with it.
I think that mount is a neck and head.

Have your say...
