Q:
I'm thinking about building a pedestal to display my deer that I took back in December. I have an old cedar fence post that I am going to use for the support post. But, does anyone have any ideas on how to create a base and how to attach it to the post? I want it to be small but heavy enough to support the top heavy post.

I saw this one a while back, and thought it was really cool. Maybe something similar would work for you?

Also I'm not sure what kind of tools and supplies you have or can get, or your skill level, but you could make a simple and effective base using some concrete(small amount) and an old wooden bucket. like this

Then take and set your post all the way to the rear, and stack some dirt/soil and rock or whatever on top of it. Should be stable and heavy enough to never cause an issue. And I haven't seen another one built in that fashion so it should be unique too.

Hope it works out for you whatever route you decide to go.
