    I like it, I may try one like that someday. There are so many good ways to just mount horns on wood or other, it is just an extra for the fun of all things to show off with horns etc, Looks great and another good idea to me.

    When I can I like to cut three strans of the same leather I use on the mount and braid them into a rope. You will get the alternating textures of the two sides of the leather and gives it that rustic look we're all looking for. Give that a try sometime. I think you may like the look.

    Sometimes I'm forced into the gay cheap plastic covers and fake gold rope crap. When I have to do it, I do, but think it looks gay and cheap.

    Very nice. Only thing I would say is that the color of the wood- the intense color of the plaque with the grain- competes a little with what is a very unique rack. Having not looked at it for a minute, right now what I remember about it visually is the wood and not the rack.

    I would not suggest rope. Generally 3D designs in odd numbers work the best, and you have three textures already- the plaque, the leather and the antlers.

    Very nice Leslie, I think you did a great job. Your leather looks nice and tight around the burrs, very nice. The braid is not only used to dress things up a bit, but it also hides any space you have around the burrline. In you case, it's very clean so it would be your choice to add the braid.

    I like to use leather boot laces or get a chamois cloth and cut strips and give em a wrap or two. Looks pretty good IMO.
