    Default Built a orchid mount in my Down time

    Hey all,

    I have been having some down time waiting for my blooms to bloom, lol. But I did get my birthday order in and had to make a mount. I put a lot of thought into what I would like to have (considering I would have to look at it everyday). And I came up with this......

    Really nice mount, Devan. It will get even better the more the plants grow. If I can figure out how to resize my pics I'll post my first mount attempt with mopani wood on another thread.
    Cheers,
    Tony
