Greetings to all wayward travelers who end up here! The Woody Dwarves will etch your initials into the fallen Betula!

These specific halls will be utilized for sharing/documenting projects, “homework”, progressions, technique discussion, ect ect, pertaining to my TinyTree study group!

We will be participating in communal projects while sharing and discussing results. This “spectrum” of projects is likely to reach into “Custom Fabrication” work, as well (Clay, cement, glass, wood, metal, plastics), as some of the existing members are already “truckin’ down those avenues anyways.

I’m working on a Date/time for our inaugural meeting.. due to Covid, we have kept it pretty digital... and I believe, that with the help of this forum (thanks again, @Bonsai Nut ) I can continue to operate LARGELY on a digital platform.

Soooo THIS means... you don’t even have to be SUPER close to our headquarters (Holey Buckets Greenspace, my thunderdome, Algoma, WI) to participate...

So basically, all are welcome, but would make more sense if you are “cold”... like us.

Pleasure to make your future acquaintance!

Leo Zornow (HorseloverFat)

Gotta @liquid_back_draft

He’s the one of the guys (from my study group) I KNOW is on here. (One OTHER guy IS on here, but i don’t know his screen-name)

He’s been working a few trees, gearing up for cement pot fabricating, and drillin holes in unique finds.... super groovy stuff, if he is willing to share...

He could start a thread here, documenting work. If he WANTED to. ;)

Hey @HorseloverFat seen your name around a lot and had no idea you were in WI! Cheers from center city Milwaukee. Haven’t reached out to the MBS yet but plan to soon. Would be great to participate in something, and digital communication is way easier given my parenting commitments.
I’m not much compared to anyone here, but I’d love a little slice of community with my brothers and sisters ‘up nort.’

There's a COUPLE more way up here, too. (Including a handful of older folks who "HATE Bonsai Forums" 😂)

@karen82 is like 20 miles-ish from me... but I think that scares her! 😂😂

Just joshin' yer taters, Karen82 ;)

Also I gotta call @berzerkules here.

I'm not sure if @Eckhoffw knows about these threads.

@Quince Is close, too.

Great to know! Haha yeah I imagine most bonsai folk are not necessarily internet folk. For my part it’s been a way of enjoying the outdoors more, unwinding, and…I don’t know, just being a little less in charge. And I just love sharing it with our toddler, when she’s in the mood to “play trees” or “play pots.”

Glad to hear she likes it! Is that your only "little human"?

Haha! I know about it now! Thanks for including me 🤣.
Im down for any bonsai related projects!
How about a chain bonsai? Start with a rather inexpensive piece, and float it around for maybe one or two years at a time between participants.
15 yrs later..... 🤣🤣🤣

Nice! Great idea!!

We'll keep the floor open to ANYthing.

I have a few of the Specific Species Studies in this area, too... I'm always open to new ones.. You can post in there, I THINK. (I know I can 😂)
