Attaching a freeze dried critter to a base

    I did some searching in the forums for options on attaching a freeze dried fawn to a habitat base but came up empty.
    I've got a beautiful little freeze dried fawn to attach to a base that will not get a glass cover. I'm trying to plan ahead for future cleaning or repair that it may need, so I'm reluctant to bed it in adhesive. (Maybe I'm putting too much thought into it?)

    So, anyway, throw me some ideas, how do you prefer to attach a freeze dried critter to a base.
    The base is 3/4 plywood with foam and fauna, trimmed with walnut hardwood.

    oldboar Taxidermy...do the impossible:)

    Yes to some extent you are overthinking it… LOL :) I would position the fawn on the base ...and run a couple of screws into it from the underside. Barring an earthquake greater than eight… It will never move and you can still remove it for cleaning.

    I really wish the customer was willing to spring for a glass case.
