Re: Span Trees: A German Craft Tradition

A few years ago, one of the carving magazines had an article on a miniature Christmas scene inside a Walnut shell using Spanbaum as the background. These also came from the Erzgebirge region. I made five of them for family and friends using an HO scale train Santa as a model and cats, baby dolls, trucks, planes, etc. to fill out the scene as appropriate to the recipient. The carving article did not name the trees, so it's great to know the name and I may have to try making a couple. Loved the video and appreciate the talent.
