A couple of years tried a stovetop nylon as a slab for a double trunk Mountain Hemlock.

Last year we had a good time here tower vine maple, the use of a joint system of internal nylon.

And earlier this spring we took a new twist to that idea, using this time a material called Corian countertop. Here are some pictures of a great mountain Hemlock I still have to present here (eventually …) are placed on a slab of Corian:

Konnor (solid) and Bobby ( stripes) bringing the Hemlock Mountain in the study. It was in this plywood, since the design of a couple of years ago, and this year was in danger of simply rot.

After sliding on the board Corian, Konnor trace the shape of the soil mass.

Our slab completed. We painted the 45% cut edge of a dark gray color. rather liked the feeling of floating the great mass of moss, what do you think?
