Would love to see ones if they have. None for me...and no room for another project. Curious if you have enough interest...if one could create another contest.

A tanuki contest would be a good one, no doubt.
I haven't tried one and I also can't take on any new projects for the next year or so, we will be moving into my in-laws place temporarily, then moving next year...well I hope next year, might bleed into '19...

Once you’ve had Tanuki ...

Ah I don’t believe it. Never been true before.

I have tried the bonsai type, also. It didn’t work. I don’t think I cut my channels deep enough. With my typical sporadic patience and/or stubbornness I kept working it for prolly ten years thinking it was going to be great until the dead wood finally rotted, the trees separated and I gave up.

Yeah, he's brought a few in to previous meetings, lot's of effort in preparing the deadwood and matching it up with the material.
He's going for it. I think I suggested using a tamarack for one instead of the usual juniper. I'm bringing some saplings next club show to see if one works.
