Castelbuono in Sicily. My next carving/gilding project.
I've just returned from 3 weeks in Sicily and photographed this shell in a castle/chapel in Castelbuono, Sicily. It was a series of shells that were on top of the seats in the chapel of an estate there. The first photo shows the interior of the chapel and the second shows my choice of shells there to carve. I'll try to document the process for this group here.

Woodturning Photos
Everyone here knows my project pictures suck.
A couple of weeks back, in the Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners post, we added an entry from Mike Peace about his shop made light booth (https://youtu.be/waJ00FWTzHk). Also, @Gerald has a great 2 part blog on photography-  https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/blogs/entry/24-lets-talk-photography/ . Using both of these resources, this is my interpretation.

Wine glass base
Okay so I am no pro when it comes to terminology of types of turnings.  Saw this somewhere and decided to give it a shot.  Not sure what it is called but looks cool.

How I got this started
Where to start is to determine just what do you want to use the bench for. At the time for me it was flatwork and planing. I looked at many plans and decided on parts of several. Not sure where each part came from but the contributing plans were in Wood Magazine, Shop Notes and Popular Mechanics.

Bulding a desk
I had mentioned in another post I was building a desk. This isn't anything really challenging but I want to prove I'm doing something. I need 2 of these, one for a basement area I use and another for our main floor "office". I was planning on doing both in an A&C style, but I now think the second one will be more contemporary.
