About to start class today in Halifax, with all female students 😁 - here’s one more pic of one of those 32 pieces I delivered yesterday before flying up here. Turned to within 1/16” accuracy. #walnut #ashleyharwood #craftswoman #woodturning #handmade #turning #practicemakesperfect Follow @AndrewAnderson_WoodWork photo credit @ashleygharwood
Just had to share this- my friends @wilker_dos and @anneofalltrades were attending a seminar at Facebook headquarters in NYC yesterday, and guess who’s video popped up in the examples πŸ™‹‍♀️ #ashleyharwood #cameo #facebookny Follow @AndrewAnderson_WoodWork photo credit @ashleygharwood
Working on some bed posts today for @chucksdust. Sharp tools are essential, and CBN grinding wheels are really nice! I always sharpen free hand with just a platform. Getting ready for my trip to Spain- I’ll be demonstrating for Tornyfusta in OrviedoπŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ» I’ll have a couple days free after- recommendations on things to do in the north of Spain (particularly hiking) are welcome πŸ˜‰ #woodturning #sharpening #freehand #ashleyharwood #craftswoman #workingontheweekend #woodworking #makersmovement photo by @bonafideproductions Follow @AndrewAnderson_WoodWork photo credit @ashleygharwood
Did y’all know that you can make super fine planing cuts with a ROUGHING gouge?!

Finished bedposts- Ashley for scale. Today I leave for Spain to turn for Tornyfusta... and haven’t started packing yet. 😬 ...and I will be that person on the plane with a nasty cough who no one wants to sit next to, so there’s that. These are for @chucksdust, #madeincharleston #woodturning #woodworking #maple #handmade #notmydesign #ashleyharwood #craftswoman #gottago

Delivered these chandelier parts for @urbanelectricco yesterday - finding enjoyment in the precision of production work lately. I have a few more projects to finish up before heading out of town next week... #woodturning #chandelier #lightingdesign #handmadeisbetter #madeincharleston #ashleyharwood #craftswoman #lathe #precisionwork #adamschandelier

This is Scott- he runs the @leevalleytools store that I was teaching at in Halifax. He was really great to work with (and his wife is a fabulous chef πŸ˜‹). It’s the people that I get to meet along the way who make the teaching part of my job so enjoyable and special. I could just stay home and turn in my studio by myself every day, but I can only take so much of my own company. Teaching offers balance to the production work I do, and my practice definitely improves from leading the hands-on classes. Today it’s back to production, next week back on the road. Pretty happy where(ever) I’m at right now. Swipe to see pics of my bowl turning class... #turnerontour #woodturning #ashleyharwood #thisiswhyiteach #makingshavings #rackingupthemiles #peoplematter #wellroundedlife (see what I did there?😜)
Some action shots from the demonstration for Nova Woodturners - I had to be really nice to the wood turning a bowl on a small lathe, but I still threw a few shavings... and it snowed here last night ❄️ ⛄️ 😱 #turnerontour #woodturning #woodworking #ashleyharwood #lathe #bowlturning #teacherlife #craftswoman #novascotia @leevalleytools
I had a demonstration with the Nova Woodturners last night- just after my first all woman turning class πŸ’™ #turning #lathe #teacherlife #turnerontour #ashleyharwood #craftswomen #farfromhome

Almost finished with these 32 pieces  of walnut to deliver before heading up to Nova Scotia this week. #woodturning #production #ashleyharwood #walnut #finishingtouches #byhandisbetter
A few months ago, a friend asked me where she could learn about my story - it was then I realized that I had nowhere to send her...but now I do. My friend Camille, who has her own carpentry business, has put together a podcast series interviewing women in the trades. It’s not just about our professions, but also about our life decisions that got us where we are, what kinds of challenges we face in male dominated fields, and how we punch said challenges in the face πŸ‘Š With a little luck, maybe a podcast like this can help inspire more women and girls to try out a trade or two.

Do you ever feel like stuff is flying at you from all directions?! I have so much to look forward to in the coming weeks and months, but the many things on my to-do list can sometimes feel overwhelming. Today, I’m keeping my head down and working in the studio- enjoying being in my own space. Photo by @bonafideproductions #woodturning #woodworking #lathe #ashleyharwood #makingitrain
From the Honolulu Woodturning Symposium- evidently, I was not the first person to use this lathe! #woodturning #woodworking #ashleyharwood #notmytools #craftswoman #turnerontour #actionshot #lathe #woodshavings πŸ‘₯ ‡ Double tap & tag your friend Love it Credit by :  @ashleygharwood #woodworkingcommunity #woodworkingvideo #woodworkingwomen #woodworkingfun #woodworking101 #woodworkinggirl #carpentero #carpentergirl #carpentersfarm #carpentersforchrist #carpentersofinstagram #carpentersarms #carpenterlife

Some beautiful patterns and forms from my hike to the lava flow yesterday at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park- one of the craziest/scariest/otherworldly/most awesome things I’ve ever done- a 12 mile hike, with the second half in the dark over miles of sharp, slippery lava rock in the rain- but so worth it. Now to figure out how to incorporate some of these into my work- it might take a few months or years to figure it out, but it’s experiences like this that I draw from. Swipe to see the glowing molten stuff. #inspiration #patternsinnature #ashleyharwood #lava #nofilter #turnerontour #artistlife #thefirewithin
Turning an ebony finial at the Honolulu Woodturners Symposium. I could not have asked for a better audience! It can be difficult to capture such a small black piece of wood on camera, especially with autofocus. These guys were patient while we figured it out and made it happen! #woodturning #woodworking #ashleyharwood #hawaii🌺 #turnerontour #mahalo
