Bill Ooms
Arizona, United States


Bill was raised on a farm south of Chicago. Wood has always been a part of Bill's life. As a second
generation wood-turner, he learned basic woodworking techniques from his father. Even as a
young man, his desire was to envision and create new things. This led him to his first career in
engineering, and now he has returned to his roots as a full time woodworker.
Much of Bill's early wood work was turning hollow vases inspired by the pottery of Native
Americans in the Southwest. Later, he combined his wood-turning skills with his math and
engineering background to create unique wood sculptures. Most recently, Bill has designed and
built a complex and unique ornamental lathe to create highly decorated objects of wood art.
Bill and his wife, Pam, have their home and studio in the country north of Prescott overlooking
the Williamson Valley.
