Bill Letterman  |  Wood

My interest in turning wood started about 10 years ago, after viewing a wood working series on the Learning Channel. I began turning pens, progressed to bowls and vases and then moved into more advanced techniques of inlays, segmented bowls, boxes and jewelry boxes, and burl pieces utilizing an Aluminite plastic as a filler. I have attended many wood working work shops both here in Arizona, but also in California, to perfect my skills, but have also taught myself many of the techniques I use today. The woods I use vary from domestics to exotics based on their availability, the finishes I utilize also depend on the piece and how it will be used. I continue to perfect my craft and expand my knowledge and skills to create one of a kind pieces and custom pieces based on a buyer’s request.
