As we all know, not everything in the forest is pine.
Today, I started experimenting with different things. I want to make very hardwoods also.

The following pics show where I am at right now.

Still need more root structure, branching (super trees), leaves and root system.

Well, another all nighter here. When I get myself into something, it is really hard to put it down. Good thing I have three day weekends.
Now where did I put that cup of coffee?

Worked on the root structure last night, I do believe this is going to work.
Once I get this tree finished. Maybe I will do another tutorial.







I have a gopher problem!

Well, now I think I will take a nap.

Dave,

Tree is looking great. I'm assuming your using the dreaded sagebrush again for the trunk.

Well, couldn't sleep. So I climbed out of bed and had visions of tree stumps in my head.



Still needs some work.

When finished, this is where the new tree will take up residence.



Sorry about the pic quality. I am working on getting a new camera and some proper lighting.

A little more experimentation going on here. When I was putting the bark on my hardwood trees. I thought it might look good on the conifers too. So here is what it looks like.







I think I am starting to get somewhere here.
What did I do with that cup of coffee?

You know Dave, if your fingers were not in the last picture, you could swear that you are looking at a real tree.
