I like the zebra. Do I have to provide the skin? Does the price reflect you providing the skin or me? Good looking stuff!

It depends upon the size of the pillow. The average zebra flatskin is give or take 7’ long and 3 1/2’ wide

Thanks for sharing. I have a Swedish "mid century 'Modern'" couch and chair I going to have upholstered in zebra (2) as soon as they get here from a recent trip to SA.

$90 a pillow plus tax and shipping. I can generally get 2 pillows out of each impala skin. I can also make bags, gun cases, and all kinds of things out of skins if you want to mix and match.

Hello, I can make large rectangular pillows out of them also. The size on the large pillows will vary as to the size of the flat skin used.
I am actually out of axis skins at the moment but am about to order more as soon as I get back from the TTHA show. I can’t quote an exact price until I order the hides. Most Axis hide that I use is raw skin that I have to tan before I can make anything out of them. This keeps cost down as tanned Axis flat skins are outrageous in cost most times.
I will be glad to shoot you a pm with some prices as soon as I get back next week and order the skins.

The zebra pillows in the picture are the ones that were done by Erik for me. It was a back skin and he was able to get three pillows out of it for me. The work done on the pillows was excellent. Should I get back to Africa I will be back with more skins.

These are really cool. What does it run to have a gun case built?

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
