Starting a thread to track progress...

Picked up this beauty about a month ago. Although I am sure there is plenty of trunk size I could still get out of it, I will begin training on this guy next year, planning on potting over tile to increase an already awesome nebari (when I peel back the moss) and cutting it back to build taper. There is a large branch blocking what I want to be the front of the tree so I am air layering it off this year and I plan on turning into a hollow in the trunk. I'm stoked on this project, probably my favorite find of the year so far. All comments welcome :)
