Chuck Cooke's Profile
Original turned wood wand designs by Chuck Cooke. I have an eclectic woodworking and art background. I have dabbled in all kinds of custom woodworking over the past 40 years. I have done numerous contracted and commissioned works. I have found enjoyment working with wood and making things with my hands.
At an early age I was drawing and oil painting. With an interest in art, I went to the University of Minnesota where I earned my Bachelor of Fine Art in painting and drawing. In my painting and drawing and I am a colorist. I guess this is why I am attracted to the brightly colored woods that I turn on the lathe into wands.
Why wands with a purpose? Well they really do not need to have any purpose other than to be admired. But what I am talking about are the magical qualities that Wicca’s and Pagan’s attribute to the different wood…
