Tree instructions for conventions

Postby Fraslund » Tue May 21, 2013 5:40 am

Greetings!

I am sure many of you have already seen this and I apologize if this is the wrong forum, but I wanted to share some instructions that I put together for our Architecture Lug group this past weekend. We did a great workshop on tree techniques and this was my contribution. I came up with this idea which was heavily inspired by Thomas Rafert after my first Brickcon when all of my trees basically disintegrated during transit. I can honestly say these trees can take some serious abuse before they break apart.

Example:

Psh. Trees are for dirty Lenfels.

Seriously though, I thumbed through the packet you gave me and it is an awesome resource! I think the 2nd best trait of your trees (topped only by how sturdy they are) is that you can make them MASSIVE because the branches are so strong.

Great job! I have to say that I think you're one of the top "new" faces in the castle building scene right now.

Very cool. I've added a link to this on the How-To page.

Cool tree design, the sturdiness is a huge plus and they look great as well :)

"Dirty Lenfels"? We're allies for crying out loud :( Besides, at least in Lenfald it's warm enough to bathe, so we do. Garhims on the other hand... :twitch:

This is a very nice and useful technique. Thanks for sharing.
You would rather be building right now.

Oh but you forgot my lenfel friend, we have hot springs :D
Alright back on topic, that is a great tree technique Fraslund, I just wish I had enough leaves to make at least one tree :cry:
