A bit of a last-minute entry, I finally had a go at turning a gnome, after Rebecca’s excellent demo, but had nothing to make a beard from, so i decided to try turning it in one piece (except the nose, of course!)

Tea light and candle holder The Yew looks lovely I think with really strong pink lines in the grain
Bought kit from woodturning shop. Not a pen expert but seemed to go together well.

Body, hat and Pom Pom were made from 1 piece of sycamore. The hat was dyed red and it was then finished with HS Danish Oil. The nose was the only separate piece and it was turned from a cypress pen blank.
This is a trio of angels I create to place as centerpieces on a table or fireplace mantle.
Base – ovangol, body – cherry with an African rosewood waist and painted sycamore wings. The wings are 1mm at the edge, 2mm in the centre to give support and pierced.
