My kids always shake their heads a little in one of those "No Duh" moments when I point out what an incredibly great resource Youtube is. Of course they already know. But I still marvel at it. I mean if you need to fix a faucet, put up dry wall or change the head light on your Civic and you aren't sure how, there probably a dozen videos there where someone shows you the way.

Anyway, I've been watching these yew videos over and over again to learn how to make something out of some of the massive yews I've grabbed on trash nights.
It has taken a couple of years. First to get them healthy (they usually weren't pulled out of the ground carefully) and into good bonsai soil, and to the point of throwing out nice new shoots.

Anyway, it's great that some of the world's outstanding bonsai artists have taken the time to post such quality videos. And help people in clubs like ours improve their skills. Kudos Graham, Tony and many others.
It's always exciting to start a new bonsai project. It's good karma too, these unwanted shrubs will have a whole new life as a bonsai.
