I don't have any pics, but a friend of mine takes a bid red cedar tree trunk and cut about a 1.5 inch thick slice. He slices it on a diagonal and lets it dry for a while. The he gives it a clear coat which really brings out the red in the cedar and then mounts the skull to that.

It's looks really good.

Here's a plan for a euro mount plaque. Just go to the thread and look for the .pdf attachment... http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=589139

What I would do is go to wallmart and buy one of there cheap mounting plaques, lay it on a piece of cardboard and trace around it to make a pattern.
Then you can start mass producing them.....

I don't think those are screw holes. I think those are gland passages that every deer have. Most mounts are secured from the backside through the board and into the skull.

I think for the ones that are just the skull plate you could epoxy a small piece wood to the under side of the skull plate and then screw through the back of the plaque into that wood.
