Monthly featured Artist

Bill Blasic

Bill Blasic started woodturning in 2002, and has found a place in the woodturning world as a fine woodturning artist and a prolific writer of numerous profiles of other wood turners, and articles about wood turning.

In his words, “woodturning is a journey that benefits one’s heart and soul, and whether useful or artistic, the wood turned pieces evoke different feelings from different folks.”

On WoW, we have the privilege of not only seeing the beautiful work Bill produces, but also have the benefit of his expertise and skill.

WoW is proud to have Bill Blasic start out a new decade as our Artist of the Month for January 2020.


The World of Woodturners site (WoW) originated in November, 2001. At its start it was the only interactive site where woodturners could post photos and descriptions of their work and engage in discussion about their art. WoW members think of themselves as a family. They are artists who have become friends and who willingly share their talents and skills. This is a place where the novice freely mixes with the seasoned professional in an atmosphere of shared respect. No one is anonymous and everyone uses their own name. From this venue has arisen some incredible art, some of which can be seen in the public gallery. Enjoy this display of fine work. Access to the site itself is at no cost, by obtaining a membership invitation from an existing WoW family member or contacting site administration at wowadmin@shaw.ca. Include your name and a brief description of your woodturning experience in the message.

The site is owned and maintained by the World of Woodturners, Inc., a non-profit organization.

Site design and hosting is a partnership between Webenology, LLC and Informanix Technology Group Inc.
