AAW 2002 Honorary Lifetime Member: Nick Cook

 

                     
 
Nick Cook lives and works in Marietta, GA, where he operates the only full-service turning studio in the Atlanta area. In addition to his bowls and vessels, Nick turns a variety of small items destined for gift shops, as well as furniture parts and architectural millwork.
 
Nick became interested in woodturning in the mid-1970s after several years in furniture design and manufacture. He became interested in woodworking at an early age, and was mentored by his father, Clarence, who, although moved from base to base by the U.S. Navy, always found a shop in which to spend time. In retirement, his dad helped out in Nick’s production shop.
 
In the early 1980s, Nick assisted Rude Osolnik at Arrowmont, and they became friends. Along with Rude and Willard Baxter, Nick was instrumental in the design and development of the current line of Powermatic lathes, and continues consulting for woodworking tool manufacturers.
 
A founding member, former director, and past vice president of AAW, Nick teaches at the John C. Campbell Folk School and Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, as well as at his Marietta studio.
