February 2006 Program: Wyatt Compton

"Creative Designs Using Scrap Wood"

Wyatt Compton has been a member of the Woodturners of North Texas for approximately six years. He was proud to host two of the sessions titled "Creative Designs for Pen Turning" at SWAT this past year in Wichita Falls, Texas.

Wyatt specializes in transforming wood scraps and "trash" into turned pieces which can be something unique and beautiful. Wyatt credits Dr. Alan Siebenthall for introducing him to the dynamic world of wood turning and he really enjoys being a member of the Woodturners of North Texas because our members enjoy sharing information and ideas.

Wyatt's goal is to inspire each of us during this program to view wood scraps with an eye for the potential beauty they can become. Wyatt will feel satisfaction if he can, in some small way, contribute to the development of a finely turned object of which it's creator is really proud.
