This middle tree (c. 1980):



Turned into this (5-6 years later):



And is this Korean hornbeam today:

Jim,
Great progress. Keep up the work on it and it thirty more years who knows what it could be. It seems to be one of your larger trees.

Great work, Jim. Nothing like the time factor in bonsai (provided you make good use of it, which you have).

Nice Korean hornbeam Jim

Until I was getting to the end of this thread, I was thinking the final tree was about 24" high and it's only 11". That's Bonsai.

Jim, it seems much more appropriate as a single star tree in it's own show. Nice transformation. It must have taken some strong will to reduce it as you did. Well done.

Thanks, all. I did think long and hard about cutting it down, but with encouragement from folks here (years ago!), the deed was done. I think it has worked.

I'm soon going to have to cut it way back toward the trunk, however, as it is getting a bit broad in the beam and is losing interior foliage.
