The back story……
Early February, 2017. Gulfport Mississippi, on a tour. I’m at Buck’s house, working on trees. A lot of trees. I did some carving on a podocarpus.
Wired it up too.That was fun.
Did some touch up carving and styling on a Campeche
Flat top style.
We drank a lot of beer.
A ficus buxifolia or ficus lingua.
In the evening I did a demo for the Gulfport Mississippi club. This is Adam.The cheesyness factor must come with the name. That’s my demo tree, a bougie, he won it in the raffleI think it survived my ministrations.
Buck has been growing this big ficus microcarpa for a long time. We wired it and did some grafting.Zipties work well.
Here’s a Texas ebony that beat me up.But I won in the end, though I had thorns in my fingers for a month.
