Default Cape Buffalo European Pedestal Mount.

A customer I shoe for had this cape buffalo. He let me borrow it to try a pedestal. Got it put together this morning. What do y'all think?

No sir, it sits very stable on its own. I would definitely recommend using some horseshoe nails to secure it to what ever a person wants to attach it to for something this massive. Im guessing this head weights 30lbs.

That's great Mike. Would you mind posting a pic of the attachment to the skull?

I just received my euro cape buff and after seeing your design, it may come off the wall.
