Euro mount boards

I'm working on a euro mount for my father in law for father's day and am wondering what would be the best way to mount it.

I have the barnwood and I am a carpenter so putting something together is no big deal. I was just wondering what opinions some of you have on mounting skulls.

Do you prefer hanging it straight of of a board with the nose pointed straight at the ground or tipped up in the natural position?

Also, what are some good ways to anchor the skull?

Re: Euro mount boards

I prefer them to hang straight down right on the board...........I use a sturdy bolt something like a 1/4" or 5/16" hex bolt, and drill a hole in the plaque, and countersink the backside enough the get a washer and nut on it............then I just hang the skull on the bolt using the hole where to spine attaches to the skull..........

Re: Euro mount boards

I tilt them at a 45 degree angle. like shown above.

I just use a 3'' drywall screw. and pre drill a hole in the skull. in the hard bone. it wont come out.
