Title: Some of my favorite/most valuable videos on bonsai
Post by: Joshua Hanzman on November 14, 2013, 12:17 AM
These are some of my favorites, some of them being the most informative videos I know of on bonsai, and where I really nourished my love for the hobby. Please post your favorites, I always love to see new good videos. These videos really are a great tool for me, and therefore, probably are a good tool for a lot of other newbies. This would be a great way to have them archived in one place, a comprehensive list for quick access. It sucks there are next to no videos in this area, we should fix that!!!

The first is a great old video by Graham Potter, and opened my eyes to how carving work is done on a deciduous tree

Good one of carving by Kevin Willson, this is a two parter, but a lot of design strategies were shown in this
