For thirty years, William has been producing attractive wood
turned objects. “One appealing quality of wood turning,” William declares, “is
that simple projects could be built quickly.” His reward for being an artist of
this nature is creating beautiful items that people appreciate. William creates
his masterpieces on a lathe. Bowls, pepper grinders, coffee mills,
rolling pins, bird houses, whatnots, pens, pencils, and ash urns are just some
of the objects he creates. Many of these products take just a few hours to
complete. Others such as his segmented bowls, which must be glued and turned,
take weeks of work before they reach the finishing point. Scott uses wood
from all over the world.
Primarily a self-taught artisan, William has read books and
watched educational videos on wood turning. As a member of the Azalea Wood
Turners Club, he has learned tricks and techniques from demonstrators at their
William’s wood turned creations are found at Black Belt Treasures and by
special request to the artist.
