This provides herbal having a look trunk taper and department taper too. Demo with a Wild Olive “Oleaster” (Olea Sylvestris) bonsai.

This video is devoted to my Beloved Wife who patiently humours me whilst I spend weekend time on tree paintings and video enhancing. If bonsai is my 2d interest in lifestyles, she is my first.

I’ve each equipment, however to assist making a decision: the Dremel is light-weight and nice for easy carving jobs of as much as half-hour.

  1. Nice tree and top quality video as always Dave! Appreciate the humour and good to see your son got some time in the limelight as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The olive was amazing before you started carving, but has undergone unbelievable transformation afterwards! I'm still learning how to create taper – this is so helpful – much appreciation and thanks for sharing!!

  3. Aussie Dave here David, bloody awesome work ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‰. Your photography and editing skills are the BEST I have seen on utube bonsai sites ๐Ÿคฉ… . You would be great on showing us how to, air-laying, and jinxing, bonsai…..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค—.. keep the videos coming.. ๐Ÿ‘

  4. I personally not a fan of smooth out deadwood features, but you did such a nice job that I might have to give this a try. Thank you for sharing with all of us bonsai fans a well made video.

  5. Hi Dave! So, it's gotten pretty cold here in Sweden now. We're having some -11'C at night and -4'C in the day and it's gonna keep going for at least another week. Last night my bonsai on the balcony got frozen stiff (not sure how good that was), so I moved them closer to the window and put some stuff around them. Today they had thawed out again. It seems the balcony currently stays between 2'C and -5'C. Do you think they can handle that for a few weeks? Or should I move them down to the cellar room? Currently, the cellar is at 7'C warm (because I turned off the radiators there). Or is that too warm? Up until last week we had like 5-15'C warm outside. I don't want them to die! D: But I don't wanna shock them either with suddenly too warm temperatures in the cellar. Though 7 degrees seem fairly ok, right? So, keep them outside, or take them indoors?

  6. Hey sooo recently me and my sister had to clear out a vacant apartment last weekโ€ฆ in the closest I found a bonsai tree, I think itโ€™s a ficus? Anyways, I noticed the top of the tree looks like itโ€™s been cut or snapped right offโ€ฆ would this effect the trees growth upwards? Or will it still grow tall?

  7. Aussie Dave here David, I assume it's winter in Spain ๐Ÿค”.but do you have any interesting facts regarding your bonsai ๐Ÿค”. We all miss your rewarding videos ๐Ÿค—

  8. Hi Dave. New to your channel and loving the many videos of yours I have watched so far, thank you. Could you tell me please, is Spring the best time to do root pruning on deciduous trees? Before the buds break out? Thanks in advance.

  9. Dave! Please tell me which bonsai book I'm going to request for my upcoming birthday. ๐Ÿ˜€
    I've watched a million bonsai you tube videos but I don't have a bonsai book.

  10. Aussie Dave here David, yes this video is what I wanted ๐Ÿค—. I have been asked from a mate to design a bonsai for his daughter who gets married spring 2023. To resemble where they are getting married. It's called ( 1 tree hill ) in Maleny Queensland Australia. I don't have enough time to train a ( sour cherry tree) so I have a jasmine but has some scared from branch cuts ๐Ÿค”. I'll use your technique to help the callous bulge.. thank you. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

  11. Its hard to appreciate sawdust when I'm doing woodwork, it sure feels nice when its just in a video not trying to get into my eyes, nose & mouth. I love the music in this video.

  12. Hey! Greetings from Germany!
    I am right at the beginning of my bonsai career, though I am interested for years.
    When I turned 18 I got a really beautiful 18 year old bonsai as a present, but I had no experience, so a few time later the tree died ๐Ÿ™ all over the time I read a bit about bonsais here and there, but this year there was a tiny acorn growing in a pot on our balcony, set istself there. So I decided to give him the chance to grow to a respectable little beauty instead of just being ripped out.
    I hope, no I believe your videos can help me manage this. You have a great talent to give your knowledge to others, in a very interesting and easygoing style.
    Thank you for your help ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Once I saw you had a wild olive I subscribed. Your editing, 2D drawings, and camera angles are top-notch. Keep up the great work, you will inspire the next generation of bonsai enthusiasts.

  14. Turned out really nice! I've been a little busy with work and other stuff, so I now have to catch up with the new videos I've missed ๐Ÿ™‚
