Spiral CCR Tree using Monkhouse portable hole

Recommended Posts

Here's video of my Spiral Tree, made of 5 Cosmic Color Ribbons (CCR), a Monkhouse portable hole as center, and steal base & top my dad fashioned up. I'll be posting more pics and details on our blog when time permits. Until then....MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!

I'm calling this a HEI Spiral Tree, thanks to my dads base/top design. :-)

Excellent idea on using the pixel strip to make a megatree! A few questions - how did you get it to wrap around smoothly (substrate?) and keep all the strips facing outward?

Also, on the video, did you shoot it in brighter light and then under expose it when you made the video?

Thanks,

david

I got to thinking about it - the only logical conclusion I can come to is that they were attached to PVC pipe - no? That would give it the correct bend and be rigid enough to support it.

Tyson,

Great job on the spiral tree! I too would like to know the "how to" of your tree like dmoore. Hopefully you will share.

Thanks!

I have confirmed that it is 1" Grey PVC pipe attached to a center pole at the top and then attached with rebar at the bottom (also with some plywood as I understand) to give it the spiral. It's my understanding that that the strips were attached directly to the PVC pipe with zip ties in a single length up the pipe and then the pipe just put into place. The sequences were done with SuperStar software.

Sometimes I guess it really is just that simple. It's great to see a wonderful idea so simply implimented. Kudos on the design there Tyson!
