Well here is my attempt at mounting a euro on a shedder. I didn't mount my skull straight up and down. Instead the skull follows the contour of the main beam. I meant to do that (this means I accidentally drilled the hole a little crooked) :chuckle: :chuckle:. It being crooked and all I figured it would look better in a corner. Anyways... it didn't turn out as good as Wastickslinger's, but I'm happy with it and it was good practice. Thanks for the idea Wastickslinger!

You guys make some good looking stuff out of your sheds. I don't shed hunt but I stumble upon some every now and then and they just end up in the bend collecting dust for the most part

Looks good!

I had to lay the skull on a lot of sheds before I found the one with the right shape. Mine follows the contour which makes it a slight turn as well. I think that is the only way to make it solid. It looks like it was turned a little on purpose.

Thank you. I really like the look of a euro mounted on a shedder. Thanks for the idea.

I've made a ton of drawer pulls, door handles and coaster holders out of antlers.  Back when I was a bank maggot plunking for steelies I made a set of rod  holders out of 2 pt sheds and bamboo.  An old dude at the river loved them so much that I gave them to him.
