    Travis, the piece is beautiful from any angle! And I love the wood chosen for the pedestal! Was that inlaid, and what type of wood(s) are involved?

    And a true rarity ... proper ear placement on a Springbok mount! From front to back, all three just "JUMP!" ;)

    Travis that is very cool!
     
  8. Thank you so much John, I believe that wood to be a keaat, it is a South African teak. that white streak is natural, a real eye catcher!! its just that contrast the fits in with the contrast of the mount... all of this, the pedistal, forms, mount, tanning all original and hand crafted by us! glad its done, looking forward to the next one...
