Another project using the Logman Tenon maker. The wind knocked this 8” Balsam tree, & being that we don’t burn wood anymore (my wife is allergic to smoke) I dreamed up this flower tree concoction.
It’s a good thing there’s a lot of bent Tag Alder trees, They’re bear to bend by hand.

I always wondered how you bend wood. Thanks for the picture showing how it’s done in, MN. Looks like it takes a lot of grunting!! Dick, you’re just full of great ideas!

This is how I get the final bend, by twisting a rope.

This is realy lovely. How do you get up to the plants to water them now and then?

The highest planter is about 5’. The pictures kind of fool you.

Cummon Dick where are your muscles. You should bend that under your own power. Show the Missus.

Good use of recycled materials.
