Looks great. I've got several soft tanned beaver laying around that would look great as wallhangers like this. One is a 68" with bright red guard hair that I've always wanted to display. Now I've got an idea so thank you.

Cool present.

I've made a couple over the years too.  Here is my last one I made.
I dressed it up a little and some old friends have given me some stuff to add to it.
I think if you're giving it to a friend for Christmas, you're a good friend.
Merry Christmas

I have made several like this one.  Tanned with no backing and as Humptulips mentioned, lace from the leather side.  Willow with the bark on.
It never changes, but it is always different.

Knew a guy in Toutle that made beaver wall hangings with 2 or 3 elk sheds as hoop or attached to hoop. Very nice.

All of them are good looking displays.  It shows that you don't have to follow certain instructions and can use your imagination.  Except the way you lash the hide with cord or leather strips:  from the leather side out the fur side like Bruce said.  You can also use maple shoots that grow from a stump.  They aren't quite as flexible as willow.
