Leave it!! It's pretty cool. Some things are ment to stay the same unless they have reached the point of no return. And it actually looks interesting, even more than a more professional mounting.

Redo it refinish it but with some Howards. If The writing is just a marker or something carefully trace it with a wood burning iron so you can sand it without fear of removing it.

Your NOT seriously considering removing your Grandfathers first elk mount from the (yes dated and tacky) marine plywood that is INTEGRAL to the mount itself because your grandfather wrote on it in HIS OWN HAND! *Do absolutely NOTHING other than cleaning to that prized* 1950s *classic home style mount that even your NANA handiwork is evident on* Find somewhere appropriate to display it but do not “UPDATE” that unique piece of your history it will NEVER have the same allure if you do.

If it's not too late - I'm another to leave it as is, or mount it as is on another mount under it, but keep the original whichever. Fun story! hardin hardin 11 dager siden
I'm in Alabama and the men in my family and friends would be soooooo proud to have that, especially since ur grandfather shot it and ur grandmother handmade that piece on it, I would attatch a beautiful larger piece of wood to the back of it and hang it above the fireplace, that way it would be a focal point in the living room and u can tell all about ur grandparents and the history of it, hunting is a big thing in the south, because u learn how to provide food for ur family and u mount the horns to show other people that u know how to do that, plus ur grandfather I'm sure lv'd telling the story and I know ur grandmother was also very proud of him because I know that probably provided enough meat for them and their neighbors. I would be so proud to own it and display it. U have alot of wood working tools, I know u & Mrs. W could find a beautiful peice of wood to attach it to, thanks for the story. Yall have a blessed night 🙏💖🌹🇺🇸😊*

I love the original mount because it looks beautiful and it reflects the time in which it was made by your grandad and your nana, Cody. Ahh nice to see the Sweetloaf telling her papa to grow back your beard! I just came back from visiting my dad and I thought how wonderful he looks and I couldn’t quite figure out why he looked so much younger until I got back home. Then I remembered how he used to have a beard but dad didn’t keep it trimmed. Dad asked his wife to give him a shave and he looked like what I always saw him when I was still at home as a child! My dad always reminded me of Clark Gable in the old movies.👍

I think your grandfather would be pleased with knowing that you've kept something like that for so long and are still telling his story this far removed from when it happened. With that said, if you want to remount them, what I'd suggest is to cut out the signature part, perhaps add a small frame around that piece, then reattach it to a new mount, and if possible, reuse the velvet either fully or in part, in the new design. I honestly don't think that your grandfather or grandmother would have any problems with you improving on the mount one bit. However, I do think that you should try to incorporate as much of the history from the original into the new design as you can reasonably do.

I would make a backplate(Wood) to match the colour and size of horns(in perspective not real size), then fit the original in it covering the holes but keep the handwriting, so it looks ballanced out fitted to a wall. On 2nd thoughts the backplate can just be mounted around the original one to complete the look and ballance, then you have not touched the original.

I've seen people who could take a picture of the writing and transfer it to a plaque. I'd do that, and keep Grandma's upholstery and put it on something nicer with Grandpa's writing embossed on a brass plaque.

I could imagine myself remounting it, but I would definitely not want to get rid of the handywork of good ol nana, nor erase the handwriting; I would saw out the handwriting maybe, to replace the whole thing onto nicer wood. The handwriting could thus be used as a plaque for the mount on a nicer background of fine wood. I think many woodworkers can appreciate that you use what you have at hand and wood is expensive; updating to a higher grade is, on the other hand, a kind of nod to the importance of the highlighted effort.

I'm rather fond of leaving it as is, but if you save his writing, like cut it out and use it as a plate on the update, and maybe use some of the red velvet in the update, then I'd say go for the update.

Perhaps refinish and frame out the original board. If you decide to remount you could cut out and edge the area signed by your grandfather and mount it to the new board.

I would keep it original. I have the last Whitetail buck my Dad shot, in 1990, from my stand. I always told him, it was my deer, because I drove it to him, and he shot it from my stand. You have such a lovely Bride, and Daughter. God bless. :)

Never change it! One thing you and I have in common without doubt is an undying love and deep respect for our GrandDad’s! I called mine “Pawpaw” and he was WWII Navy. Keep that the way he made it, place it somewhere you will see it often and think of him and his impact on the man you are today!

I have refinished a few guns to keep them protected. But my grandfather shotgun i inherited is a browning made in 1928. He had it refinished once years ago. It needs it again, but i will not. I just keep it well oiled to prevent it from getting worse and plan to keep it as is the rest of my life.
