Nice octo.

Like that you show that even from something that isn't great material is something to make of.
It allso shows the great talent you have.

Best regards,

I'm glad you shared this. It reminds me of something others here may find interesting...

In Japan there is a tremendous amount of variation in five-needle pines, even in seeds from the same tree. When you see these pine forest plantings or groups most often you're looking at a common root system with branches or multiple trunks trained as a raft or sinuous style. What appear as individual trees are actually connected and may have started just as the tree shown here. Sometimes the connection is part of the design while it may be completely hidden in others.

This is an old picture of mine that I scanned, so please excuse the poor quality. The tallest tree is over 3 ft tall, and the slab is over 6 ft long. One root system shared by many trees.

Did you try this a few times before you got it right? How did you cover the root system to make it look loke a forest? Have you found a certain tree workes better for this kind of project? Thanks for your time.
