Long time woodworking lurker here. Havent had a reason to post a topic until recently when my wife pointed out a tree shelf she saw and was wondering if I could replicate it.
When I saw it I wasnt sure how to approach it.
-a jig saw maybe and a couple of laminated 3/4 sheets of mdf. Sounds awfully heavy that way. and mot sure a jig saw could give enough depth that this one appears to be. but maybe if you did it in thinner sections and laminated after you cut.
-make limbs and trunks separately and assemble later. but given how different limbs join at the tips and the trunk wanders all over the place seems it would be pretty tough that way. But that is only way i can figure.
Just wondering what the more experienced folks might suggest. thnx
