This tree has been waiting for my attention for quite a lot of time.   At the end of last summer I have finally decided to move it.    

In the spring I have removed a dead bark and revealed a shari in the front  and in the back of the tree.

Last weekend I completed the first round of carving.   I will have another one later on once I will have a second look at the result.

The carved area will be left for some time without any chemical treatment to get weathered in a natural way. Once I am happy with that progress I will use a joint sealer with some India ink.
NOW I will focus on the built up of the failed engine that I have neglected for really a long time.

Current height of the tree: 27 cm up to the top Jin on the right.


I have used a Dremel and various chisels.

I hope you are joking as a gift Very Happy

I'm sure you would like something for it. Regarding the size and style though I don't think I would be able to afford it now much less visit Prague as I just returned from vacation and I am broke as a joke.

Prunus mahaleb No 2 Empty dead wood on prunus mahaleb

Post  abcd on Wed Aug 26, 2015 7:13 pm

Hello,
to have  natural dead woods on prunus mahaleb, you must create more curves and holes, and use only your hands, not an electric machine, a hammer and a sculptor chisel, a pliers to tear the wood fibers .
Look at the photographies of my prunus mahaleb ( sorry, i can't use the upload off the forum because off anti virus KASPERSKY )  , all the dead woods be created with this technic , carving with an electric machine is good for buxus or olive only, becaus the wood is very hard .
At the end, use fire and polish the dead wood when it is burning with glass paper only .

As far as I know, which may not be very far at all, Dremel is a very popular tool for carving. I just borrowed one to try out. You said that it is only suitable for Olea and Buxus . Might be news for some. I really feel a need for some clarity here!

Thomas,
A gift is a gift. Well, till the 31st August 2015 Wink

abcd,
thank you for your comment. Knowing your trees published here on the forum I know what you are aiming at. While I am happy to agree with the targeted result of the work I do differ on the technique used to get there. Electric tools with a good quality properly sized/shaped tool heads help me to remove excess material or create the basic structure of a hollow etc much faster then doing the same job with other tools. The chisels, knives etc are great tools and I do use them as well. Much more for the final touches though. Just my way to do it no offence ment here.
I have about 20 mahalebs now and if the Force stays with me I will collect another 5-10 next year. Great quality - some of them better than the ones published on my blog. Plenty of material for work on a deadwood. If your travels bring you to Prague please take your tools and give a ring. I will be delighted to meet you at my place to have some practice Very Happy

Still somewhere in the last third of its basic development - The lower section has a reasonable basic structure in place, the middle section should stay empty as it is now and we just need to get more structure on the top section of the crown.

Hello Vlad: You have created a beautiful base and structure. It will be a pleasure to see it in flower. I do wonder if the scale you have chosen is a bit small given the foliage size.

I look forward to seeing more!

Thank you, David.  Yes, you are right, it will make a better tree if it is 20-25 cm taller (at least ).  I would really prefer to have as many trees as possible in the range of  60 - 90 cm.  That is the size of my hearth.   The rest of my body has different view though  Evil or Very Mad .  So I have more and more shohin and chuhin.

On the other side - As you know the size of the leaves can be reduced if you give it enough time and the right horticulture.   And that applies also for mahaleb.  For sure they are still wild trees so the leaves are still bigger than we may like.  But  +/- 3 cm what I have on the mahaleb No 10 is achievable.
