My Workshop

Post  jolz on Sat Jun 25, 2011 2:11 am

Hello again fellow members,
I want to share to everyone my Bonsai working area. This workshop was designed by me and built with the help of my friends almost two years ago. I was forced to built this one as my wife always nagged me about the tools and wires scattering anywhere. My wife is right, everything related to Bonsais are now in order. In addition, this small space also served as my visitors receiving area and also for happy hours after sunset.
Regards,
Jolz

Very nice place you got there Jolz.
We got similar story with our wives...good for you though, your workshop is still in your yard (for now hehehe). in my case I was kicked out of my our yard, when my trees got bigger.

Gideon,
I trust all the people around our neighborhood. I've been good (really?) to everyone, the reason that not even a single tree was stolen from my garden.

Jolz

I was thinking the same thing. If I did that, sooner or later trees would disappear and I live in a quiet spot. I trust my neighbours too, just not sure about passers-by!!

Your set up is beautiful, that looks like a great spot to work on trees and survey the rest of the garden. That's one mad looking root over rock you have there in the 3rd photo!!

Very nice working area you have there,my collection hasnt grown to the size that my wife would boot me out yet... but its getting there and when she does i have a nice little spot at the bottom of the garden that is crying out to be used as a workshop area (cant wait Very Happy ).Its good that you are able to keep your tree's so close to the gates/road so others can get to see them,as for me,mine have to be kept behind a locked gate and high fence even though i live in a nice area as there are untrustworthy people out there who would have no problem stealing from others like us.This year alone i have had 2 plants stole from my front garden during the day time,both where in nice pots and disapeared within a few hours of me checking on them.Here's hoping you the best of luck cheers Mike.

You have a beautiful place Jolz! I love your twisted ficus; it will look really nice when the roots catch up to the trunk!
Best,
Todd

Gents,
I'm quite so lucky that I've never lost a single tree to burglars, although I sometimes think that one of these days; it might happen, but knock on wood and hopefully not. That ficus in the third pic was just the upper part of the tree that has been trained for almost 5 years. I cut it drastically and set it in that rock, now for almost 6 months. The clasping is still developing, I just don't like the original rock where it sits before. By the way, I just imitated the design on the Chinese characters which means "Long Life", But who knows since I'm not a Chinese I'm still confused if that is really what it is meant. Anyway there's nothing more I can do as untangling the trunk is not possible anymore.

Regards and thanks for the comments,
Jolz

Your wife did you a big favor. Your work area and garden look great. Often most people's bonsai collection looks like a mess as they have trees everywhere, crammed on top of each other and poorly displayed. Figuring out a nice way to display them in your yard will add signifincatly to the enjoyment of the art. Congratulations on a beautiful set up to enjoy your trees and work.
