    I really enjoy the tutorials that eveyone puts together, I learn so much, but I think we need some more from you professional habitat folks, cause quite frankly....my base work sucks!!
    can ya help a sista out?
     
  2. I agree with Bobbi. I don't do a ton a bases, but the ones I do are not that great. I would like to spice them up a bit.
     

  3. I'm fixing to do one for a 3-D redfish. I will put a pictorial together on that. I also have a 1/2 size aoudad that we will be working on soon I'll put one up on that to. I build the bases, foam work and painting then my wonderful beautiful wife does all the habitat.
     
  4. i need an iccicle tutorial, for a black raccoon base im doing for the Tx show.

    aussiesam I'm an Australian.

    Would like to see the 'making' of a wooden base please.
    I can only find 1 person to build bases like the ones in the supply catalogs, if I nag enough, and he charges like a wounded bull.
    I'm ok with working with wood but just dont have the know how for planning/assembly. :)

    I'd like a good mammal base tutorial, either forest floor type or some good jaggedy rock ones..
    Is this our wish list?
     
  8. I will do the fish on a good wooden base. Bobbie the auodad is going to be a rock ledge with hill country floor
     
  9. Was that a hint Bobbi?

    ummmmmm maybe!!!
     
  11. If I get a little time I will put something together. It will take a little time.
     
  12. I am doing a bobcat base and have been taking some pics, so I will post them when I get done. You guys and gals can critique it when I get it done. Hopefully tomorrow. This is my first attempt at a rock base. One question on painting the rocks. I got black and brown tempera paint. What do you recommend on using for painting the rocks?

    i check the habitat every day and some days there are only like 4-5 post for the day, not learning much there. Bobbie is right could we have more from the habitat section. Water, ice, I see alot of questions on how to make these, but really no answeres just hit the search button. Kinda hard to follow the how to on these maybe a visual would help. Nice thread bobbie, cant wait to see what we get...lol
