Two shari's were added to reduce the visual weight at the end and create more movement. The live wood is still too wide but as the tree callouses, the live will be cut back again to give the appearance of natural die back.
Once the new deadwood has seasoned I will add some delicate carving. I will keep it simple and let the weather do most of the work. It is more to do with the cut stubs where the tree was reduced.
The tree was then wired to add a little movement in the beginning of the branches.
Now back on the bench and given a good feed.
