What is inside a WT form, both pedestal and a normal mount. Are they hollow? Or is there wood that attaches to the backboard that runs part way into the foam?

I do very much believe we are to hate sin and love the sinner. We just need to also understand that the sin I hate the most should be my own and the sinner I love the most should be the one who has sinned against me.

So in theory I could take a mule deer pedestal and make a cavity from the back of the form all the way to the mid neck?

In "theory", however, your antlers would be enough weight to crush and implode your manikin without some serious internal support.

What would you think about a 8 inch by 8inch by 4inch cavity at the back of a pedestal mount, not the part that attaches to the wall.

Pedestals? Walls? Pedestals mount on tabile tops, not walls.

I have no idea if they are still in business or not, but Chandlers in Jackson Ms. made a foam mankin that was hollow about 1/2 way in.
Sounds like your wanting to make a secret compartment. What are we hidden in there?  ::) :D

I saw somewhere somebody had built a safe in the back of one.  Not sure where I remember seeing it.

Hidden safe, great idea but I still like the deer head ventriloquist dummy.

That is exactly what I am going to do with a mule deer pedestal. I should have it on here in the months to come.

That's a marketing strategy they CALL a "Wall Pedestal". In the truest form, that's is NOT a pedestal but rather an offset shoulder with a cutout.
