Another bear I just finished up getting ready to go home.
Yes this part of my shop is in disarray.
Nice looking mount. Shop looks good to me, about like mine when I'm all the way into something big.
How come you're not watching American Stuffers on the tv.?
Just kidding. Nice mount.
I knew that would not take long.
bear has a great fluff going....looks nice....did you make the rock bases? they look really good
thanks and yes sir
Looks nice from here. Do you have any close-up pics?
that mount is sweet SO much better than the Rin Tin Tin looking paw on a raised shelf base
VERY nice looking bear. Good job!
Looks great. Is the base meant to sit on the floor or hang on the wall? How is the balance?
thats funny....no its for the wall
I only wondered because it looked slightly flat on bottom. It will look great on the wall.
Good job. The rock looks great too.
Nothing negative towards you at all when you said hows the balance I scrolled back up to the picture and looked at it again and started seeing him on a rock colored circus ball balancing on it.Nothing negative meant back at you.Im a funny weirdo.I was saying that was funny because of my thought not toward you.
How do you anchor something that big and heavy to the wall? Do you just use two helping hand hangers or somehow bolt it on the wall? I've seen many large displays on walls and always wondered what method they use to secure it.
Not intending to hijack the thread, but in answer to your question...On big habitat "rocks" and bases, I use "Peace-of-Mind" hangers and space them on a multiple of 16" centers (standard stud gap) so client can put lag screws into the studs and slip the habitat right down over the screws. In other words, I space the hangers either 32", 48", or 64" apart depending on the width of the mount. You need to plan the back of your framework ahead of time to make sure this will fit your hanger spacing.
I also try to place them level to the habitat's final desired position to make it easier on the client when drilling holes in the wall to place lag screws. If my hangers are not level on the back because of design constraints, I will provide the client with a cardboard template to use so it's a little easier when placing screws.
Thanks. The only time I did a semi-large one I did it that way, but it was a fox on a rock and I thought maybe a bear would need something bigger than a couple of screws and wondered if there was a special hanger for lag bolts or something.
Nice work Jason! Looks very well groomed. I saw this on FB the other night when Jimmy shared it. Love the rock work as well!
