help a brutha out...

I just made a few of these to add to my table at the gun show.
I figure since this is the turkey hunter's hangout, youinz know they're for beard and fan display

there's two different styles and three different woods
(Cherry, Black Walnut, Red oak)

which style beard board  do you like best?









If there's a general consensus on one style, that's the only style I'll make.

Thanks for your help

    thos weekend in the Summit Co Fairgrounds
    (near Akron Ohio)

    The weekend after Easter
    Expo center in Niles Ohio in the Eastwood Mall plaza

    I sell 1911 grips, pistol stands, long gun stands,  wall racks, etc

    My grips are my show stoppers though
    check some out


















    some wall display racks and pistol stands






    I love to shoot and love my pistols, but don't hunt to speak of.
    so I really don't have a clue what works best for mounts.
    i just took a look at friend's fan mount and said,

    "shheeeeeiit, I can make one of those"

    any help or guidance with design and operation would be greatly appreciated, Akita

    feel free to PM me if you prefer

    Thanks

    Genie:  What kind of wood is used in the 4th picture?  Would it work to use that type of wood for a cap/spout cap on each end of a bison horn powder flask? Thanks.

    Awesome grips genieman!
    You're making me want a new gun to put a set on! STOP IT.
    The mount boards are cool too. I'm a big fan of woodworking. Wish I had a shop to tinker in.
    My pick would be the design on the right, in walnut.

    i like the red oak design the best as far as from cherry to oak in color i like the lighter colours i just like how you edged the bottom on it better.

    For another idea, Maybe wood burn where the tail would be held a picture of a full strutting tom with a hen, or like WTF with feet on both sides.. or like tree with turkey flying up in them..i can see it...

    Bull Lifter, I like that idea, but that would take artistic talent...that I ain't got....

    Thanks for the suggestions, thoughts and pics...keep 'em coming

    for the record, i prefer the looks of the one on the right too.
    I'll for sure have them in both oak and walnut so folks will have a choice of light or dark .
    Probably make a cherry or two as well .

    Personally, I've always preferred Black Walnut ...it's just my favorite  wood.
    But I make all my wood goodies in oak,  walnut and cherry .
    It's just about an even spit between oak and walnut as far as which wood folks choose .
    Cherry has always come in 3rd

    Thanks again Fellows

    All very nice work.

    I don't always snag fish, but when I do...
    I choose Little Cleos

    I'm the best looking smartest snagging poacher alive...

    Search out some wormy chestnut, that would make a great looking piece.
