I’ll bet the shop was filled with the wonderful aroma of olive wood while you turned this.

Beautiful, Bambi.
I wonder if you know that you can rotate your photos. If you’re not using editing software, where it’s easy enough to figure out, you can probably rotate them right in your camera.
I use a program called GIMP. It’s free and intuitive, and a few simple clicks will orient your photos just as you want them.

I just saw Jim’s post about how he used your mounting idea that led me back to your post. I must have miss this due to all the work I’ve been trying to catch up on around the house. This is sure is thinking outside the box and the results are impressive! Nice work buddy!
