Matt Thompson Wall Pedestal

Discussion in 'Deer and Gameheads' started by whitetail8, Sep 13, 2009.

  1. Here is my twist to a wall pedestal. My wife works in an embroidery shop, So I had here add a detail to the back of this mount. I shot this deer back in 2007 and it was my first deer mount. Well I got tired of looking at all the mistakes I made and decided to remount it. It wasn't the best cape and I am sure there are still some mistakes, Just not as bad as the first. I then added it with a doe mount to a floor pedestal.Let me know what you think.

    It looks great! Ill bet there would be a market here for stuff like that! I know I would be interested.
     
  5. I tried to do it on deer skin but it was too thick, I can have the work done for $15 for clients since my wife works there. Any one else it would cost them $25. Mine was done for free. I will probably charge $35 or $40 to add it to a mount.

    Awesome...I love it!

    Makes me want to do a mount with the embroidery.

    thanks for sharing!
     
  18. Brian, Nice looking mounts and great idea. But I do have to correct one thing you said...
    "Mine was done for free." I've been married long enough to know it will cost you something
    somewhere down the line if it hasn't already! Again, Good job.
     
  19. Thanks for the nice comments everyone. EddieB, Truer words were never spoken!
