    OK due the amount of interest generated in my Tree build, Ive decided to write up a guide of sorts for those that are keen on how it was done.


    Just let me say that as a guide writer I make a pretty good fisherman so you'll have to take it as it is.


    Cheers

    Thanks for this mate. I have my mega trees up but always find other installations interesting as it gives me a chance to see possible improvements or lessons learned that I might apply to my own.

    Great guide, thanks for the effort and thanks for sharing

    My only thoughts on the method you used was that personally I would have just used strip instead of making the strapping with eyelets, just seems a lot of hard work for putting pixel strings into the strapping and eyelets. But then thats just me and im lazy. :D

    Thanks Ed
    I did think of using strip but as my tree is right in the viewers face and its 360 deg, With the strings you still get the 360 effect from the front, and strip would have been a different look all together.

    I like the classic look of the 360 pixel trees. Looks like Christmas even during the day.
