Turning for the Kitchen

Nick Cook
August 4-8

Dazzle your friends and family with the wide variety of gifts you will learn to make in this class. All the projects are kitchen related and include both spindle and faceplate turning techniques. Nick’s instruction begins with the basics of tool selection, sharpening, and chucking techniques and goes on to sanding, finishing, and even marketing your wares. Projects include honey dippers, rolling pins, salt shakers and pepper mills, bottle stoppers, bowls and plates along with a few surprises. This is a great introductory course for beginners, and a good way for those who have already taken a course to refine their skills. 

Nick Cook is a versatile turner who makes production gift items and one-of-a-kind bowls and vessels that he markets through gift shops and galleries from coast to coast. From his studio in Marietta, GA he also provides turned parts for local furniture makers and millwork shops. Nick has been turning wood for more than 30 years, and is a founding member and former vice president of the American Association of Woodturners. He teaches extensively at schools and symposia throughout the US, Australia, and New Zealand. His website is nickcookwoodturner.com.
