I have a nice Roe Buck Skull that I want to get mounted. (Full skull not cut yet)
To my utter amazement Mrs Naseby, who previously hated the idea, thought the skull was "rather beautiful and interesting" when I showed her.
She has said that she is happy for it it to be displayed in our Dining Room :eek: I am in deep shock!!
Her stipulation is that it must look good and be "professionally" mounted.
She has seen some examples of my DIY previously! :oops:
We have a lot of antique mahogany furniture so she has mentioned a mahogany plaque.
If I can get this right I am welcome to add more!!

Two questions - anywhere in the South (Hampshire/West Sussex/Surrey preferred, but London could also work) where I could get the skull cut and then mounted on a high quality plaque? If not where is the best place to source a really high quality plaque? (I'm having it judged soon and think it may make a Bronze medal btw)

​Thanks in advance for any help

It really is an easy job to do yourself, it will look no different to getting it done 'professionally' and there are plenty of places online to get a suitable shield from the plain and ordinary to the ornately carved. There are numerous threads and step by step instructions on the forum to take you through the process.

Naseby - very happy with the mount it arrived quickly, and it's a nice piece of work. I'll post a picture on the thread the website was linked through.
