For those of you interested in displaying your shohin, check out this link to the 13th Fall Exhibition at Shohin-Bonsai. The site is in Japanese, but you can click all the pictures for closeups of the displays. If you are feeling more adventurous, you can find the two links just above the display photos - the first is links to all the individual item winnners, and the second is to overall winners (total displays). Enjoy!

I really like this! I have been toying around with making root stands some this year. Finding just the right snag to use being the real challenge.

I tried my hand at the root carving thing. It is not as easy as it may seem. This one was carved from mahogany. I needed a small stand for this maple layer semi cascade.

cheers

wow, very nice stand smoke. did you use a dremel? and how do you go about polishing the wood on the inside of the stand? seems like you may have limited access into some of those places that you may have to hand polish?
