Carving a dead branch on a bonsai tree
In this free step-by-step guide I share the carving I did on one of my Rhamnus lycioides bonsai trees.

I had one big branch I cut and carve and 2 other stubs that I did.

I am using some power carving tools like a Dremel and also some manual carving tools.

I do the main work here and later let nature and time do his thing to make the weathering so it becomes part of the tree.

The goal of the carving is to make everything more proportional, to make it unified and to help tell the story of the tree life.

Hope you enjoy, will be happy to hear any feedback :)
