Just got done building this thing. Made with 1x4's and then stained. Stripped most of the shaggy bark off the cedar post and screwed more 1x4's inside the base to stabilize the post. Then added a styrofoam pad inside, putt moss on top of it and stuck some grass in the foam. Now it's in the office with the rest. Whatcha think?

Very nice. I did one similar to yours, but did not do as nice of job on the base and the grass. Yours looks very nice.

Those are very nice. I am going to try a variation by cutting an old cedar post length wise and mounting to the wall instead of a base.

I just run some wire thru the back of their skulls and tied that to a screw that is screwed into the post. Can’t see it and didn’t cost me $40. Secure as can be too.

I used either a 3/4 or 1 " piece of stained dowel rod to secure mine. Drill hole into post about an inch or so and stick the dowel in. Then drill a 3/4" hole in the brain stem hole on back of skull and slide it on. Maybe cost $2.
