Hello my Dukeys, In this video I show you how to turn some wire, a salt lamp, a hatchet and a unicycle into a beautiful glowing Bonsai sculpture. I hope you like it. And if you did, please give it a "like" and subscribe. Also! If you want a chance to win the "baby" bonsai sculpture, all you have to do is: Follow me on Twitter https://twitter.com/bobbydukearts?lang=en and retweet my tweet about this video, that’s it! And in one week (10/4/19) I will randomly pick a winner and ship it out free of charge! Love you guys.

Thanks to Ian (Idubbbz) for being a good sport when I shipped the ball of wire to him lol If you haven't already, go give him a subscribe https://www.youtube.com/user/iDubbbztv

Somehow, I'm picturing the neighbors huddled together in their living rooms, whispering, "He's outside again...".

One moment you’re smashing a salt lamp with rock music and an axe, the next you’re creating a detailed aluminum bonsai with relaxing music...

So glad I'm your grandmother! One of the first words your sister said was,":Stop it,, Bobby!" That says it all abut your early years.Then you were off to learn how to live. I'm so very grateful you and NIcole found one another - You're a beautifu couple and have produced three gorgeous daughters. So I'm proud of you and all your crew - but I'll admit I didn't seet this coming. By "this," I mean all this artistic talent. I'm byond amazed. But of all the art you have made, my very favorite is the bonzai. It's super beautiful. So thank God for you and Nicole and your beuatiful daughters and I'm so grateful to have lived to see how wonderfully all of you have lived such really important lives full of love. Gmother

I actually really want to give this a shot. I think my wife would love it. Unfortunately, I do not have a unicycle, or an American Flag hat with blond wig. On the plus side, I can use that as an excuse, rather than my own lack of talent, when the final result fails to impress.

I actually have a copper Tree that we got as a gift. It's roots cover a flat bottom and hold it up off the bottom, this is because there are hundreds of pennies in there and under the roots and tree to represent the rich soil the tree is on.

I love that there's a kind of subtle implication of sending him just a ball of old wire that he can make something out of nothing too if he wanted, and him saying that It's Perfect, just how it is, is an even cooler thought It was just a goofy joke but it lowkey kinda felt like more than that

"I want that." I've been practicing art with metal for a year now (ie making various jewelry). I am taking inspiration from your video because I've been fascinated with bonsai trees recently as well and am considering making a cascade bonsai tree in the near future. I enjoy all of your videos and they're very inspiring to me. Keep up the amazing work!
