the wood

the wood in my situation did the creative work for me! got mine from robert martinez @ texas driftwood. the last one i just made a simple roundish base with some statice plant scenery and a driftwood stump in the middle that had 2 short fat wide spread limbs v-ing up and just laid the horns in the middle of the v-customer loved it! season before last, i used one of roberts wide cedar flats so it could be hung on wall or laid on a table. mounted one skull to the base and left the other one suspended in midair. it really emphasized that they were truly LOCKED. just have fun with it and experiment with different base ideas, just be sure and try not to let them slip apart, cause it's a bitch trying to lock them back together!


mount one....

mount one on the wall and the other protruding from the wall at a downward angle, so to still display the racks. it doesn't have to be a side display


or mount it at the center and attach the antlers to the wall instead of the skulls


thanks

You could screw several pieces of driftwood together to get the shape you need. How about a corner mount, one on each wall face to face
