Looks great! What kind of wood for the hoop? Did you put a leather backer on backside of fur before running the leather string through? Or just straight through the hide? Im going to do my first beaver from last year and looking for pointers. Again, outstanding job on that. Great way to show it off.

Sorry about the cockeyed pic not sure why it did that. I did use a backer to re-enforce the hide, I was worried it would tear threw. I知 planning on doing a few more so I値l play with a few different ideas and update, this was kind of a trial run

I've done a few and I think willow is the best for the hoops, easy to bend and easy to find a straight one. Get them in the spring when the bark is slipping so they peel easy.
I never used a backer on mine, just straight through the beaver hide. never had any problems.
I find you can only sew from leather side to fur side and it has to be tightened that way otherwise it pulls fur through and doesn't look so good.
