I've been turning a lot of Pear wood recently after acquiring a large freshly felled tree. I put a plastic glove over my chuck jaws to stop them from rusting, it works a treat! Also, only yesterday did I tape this bendy LED lamp to my extraction hose so I can now quickly put it exactly where I need it. Why did I not think of this earlier??

Although I prefer to make one-off pieces I have a few popular designs that I'll return to and make versions off. This Black and Gold bowl works well on different scales and I particularly enjoy the moment of revelation when the black stain is wiped on and the gold "pops". #rubnbuff #blackandgold #annawoodturner

A few of my pieces will be on display in the new members cabinet at the Guild shop in Lewes over summer. #sussexguildshop @thesussexguild #annawoodturner

We had glorious but HOT weekend at Parham and my boys were all there to support me! What's left of my creations are now off to Venue 4 of the Worthing Artists Open Houses, 36 Madeira Avenue and the Shoreham Art Gallery.

A couple of stripy bowls from Maple, Walnut, Oak, Fumed Oak and reclaimed Purpleheart flooring ready for the Sussex Guild Show at Parham House this weekend. #SussexGuild #parhamhouse #woodturning #annawoodturner

Footed vessel from spalted Swedish Birch brought back to England in hand luggage last summer. Hollowed out using a ring tool. Need to get the tool even sharper for a super finish straight from the tool but enjoyed some good cuts! #ringtool #swedishbirch #annawoodturner

A new idea! Not as nicely finished as it looked at midnight last night but with a bit of tweaking and cleaning up I think I'm onto something interesting. #quirky #rub'n'buff #woodturning #annawoodturner

My new friend @svarvulf taught me some invaluable tricks in his workshop yesterday. We enjoyed ourselves making angel hair shavings with his beautifully sharp ring-tool. It's wonderful to use and one I will definitely add to my small collection of favourites!! #ringtool #sharptools #hollowing #annawoodturner #woodturning

The boys are finally off school and we're having fun down the allotment! There's an abundance of berries, fruit and veg to harvest! The mystery big white ball popped up in the potatoes patch after a few days heavy rain and is in fact an edible mushroom called a Giant Puffball, never seen one of these before! #alottment #harvest #outdoorsfun #greatforthekids #wellbeing #annawoodturner

I'm working on one of my Spherical Bowls. This one is smaller than usual at 20 cm across as I wanted to incorporate some very special woods that I've bought recently like the pressure fumed Oak and quilted maple, but these were narrowish boards. I love a good jig and this little construction held the sphere nice and tight. Low speed at this stage though to cut the hole!! I'll post pictures of the finished piece soon! #Sphere #woodturning #timberdeal #ParhamHouse #stripybowl #woodart #annawoodturner

Been busy making Sycamore half-sphere earring studs, 7-9mm diameter, painted on and off the lathe with Enamel paints. The posts are surgical steel. #studs #earrings #woodenjewellery #enamelpaints #annawoodturner
