Shimpaku 2019: Mystery Box

Postby MJL » May 26th, 2019, 8:44 pm

Don’t judge me. I’m watching Masterchef. It’s ‘secrets’ week - secret recipes and mystery boxes everywhere.

So a second Shimpaku for the weekend. Another one of slightly more mature age - again flawed but reasonable nebari.

Anyway - here’s the photos of the original stock and the last photo is purposely ‘mysterious’ - I’ll update it in a year or two. [WINKING FACE]

Good fun. Cheers, Mark

That’s cool. You did something good today. :yes:
(I should be clear and emphasise I am speaking about the tree... not so much Masterchef... I’ll leave that for another day!) :whistle:

Thanks Ant and R3, comments appreciated. Don’t be fooled - it’s a semi-dark mystery photo because it does not look great in the light ..... well not yet anyway. Good fun to work on though and it’s nice to be working with a bit more substantive stock too. As I and others have noted before - ‘you cannot polish a turd’ so this flawed stock will always be flawed stock but enjoyable nonetheless. Cheers, Mark.
