    Here is a warthog skull on one of the shields we made. My friend Lenny finally made some spears and got his warthog skull hung up. Really like the way it looks and think a skull on the shield is perfect. This is just a smaller female skull also so a nice male boar I think will look great.

    We do make and sell them but right now we make them to order. This one is made of fir with a two piece mahogany base. Send me a pm if you want to talk about one.

    Thanks everyone for the comments.

    Thanks everyone.

    BWH I am sure you saw the one we made at gizmo shop. That one was solid mahogany though and the look I really like. Good luck if you make one it is a fun little project.
