I like the tree. Don't like the display. You should move the tree about 3 3/4 " to the left and flip the 2x4 over onto the muddy side to give it an "earthier" feeling. Trash can handles should ALWAYS face towards the viewer, at least that's what the Kei Do folks say
Hi PaulH, I like what you are doing with this tree. You're heading in the right direction I think. Here's how I see it in 5 years.
Good luck with it!
Oh by the way, the pink wire has got to go.
