Bill grew up and lives in San Antonio, Tx. He has been married for 32 years and has one grown son. He watched a demonstration of turning a pen 26 years ago and talked his wife into letting him buy a Shopsmith. One year later, he bought a bandsaw attachment for the Shopsmith and soon started making bandsaw boxes. All of this from browsing a book, found a bandsaw box interesting, and something he might want to create. Bill uses mostly native woods and he lets the wood speak to him. "What am I going to do with you today?" He says it is a lot of fun not knowing what he is cutting until it is finished. Bill is a forever type of guy as you can tell by being married for 32 years. He wants his wood pieces to last forever. He would love for them to be treasured and passed down to children and grandchildren as heirloom family treasures.
