Cornus the fat double trunk

Hello people, just before Christmas. I made a few small dead wood work on my Cornus mas double trunk, he has a lot of weight. Exclamation
Found in 2001 in Hungary and since 2007 in work. He will still be several years in training before the first exhibition. Rolling Eyes
Before processing 2006

Very nice material and work too! I´d like to mention just one detail - is it possible to narrow, to make thinner the part of deadwood in the red elipse? It should improve the taper. If it is not possible to take out some deadwood, then I´d add some hole, uro there.

Hi Karl,

Wonderful tree with depicting very very old age and lots and lots of character - especially at the base of the trunks. The dead wood and the hollows are just too good. However what I liked most about the tree is this little branch....(pic below) In its smallness, it completes the canopy of the main trunk in a very unique way. Great to know that you thought about it....

Ravi, yes the tree is very old, probably more than 100 years. I have a lot of respect from those trees and I give the tree enough time to after recover for work.

Love the detail in the carving. However... I think you may have to revise the carving in the future. You have carved the new grain in the wood, across the natural grain and even now can see how it is going to split along the natural path.
