New Mexico Woodturners

Click to get map and directions to NMWT meeting

New Mexico Wood Turners, located in Albuquerque, has over 100 members from the Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and around central New Mexico.  We meet the first Saturday of each month and welcome anyone with an interest in wood turning, from beginner to professional.

Meetings feature presentations on turning techniques, wood selection, tools and safety. Special topics have included vacuum chucks, holiday ornaments, and other unique subjects.  Every meeting includes an informal "Instant Gallery" of member work which you can see in our GALLERY section.

 We bring in nationally known guest presenters several times each year, and the club sponsors numerous special events and projects.   A popular event is the woodturning exhibition at the New Mexico State Fair, "Expo New Mexico"  held every September. Activities include woodturning exhibitions, live demonstratons, and videos on a range of turning topics

Hi Ladies and Gents!

Ready or not, the holiday season is upon us!  And we will roll it out in style with our annual gift exchange December 3. Don’t forget to bring a woodturning-related gift (tools, blanks, jigs, videos, books, finished turnings, etc.) in order to receive a raffle ticket. When the number on that ticket is called, the person holding the ticket can approach the table, draw the next ticket and then select a gift.

The second – and equally important – part of the December meeting is the selection of topics to be covered in 2017 club meetings. We will start with a VERY brief review of topics presented the last couple of years, followed by a review of topics suggested but not actually presented in 2016. Suggestions for 2017 will be taken from the floor. Then we will vote, with each member voting for multiple topics. The top 10 topics with the most votes will be scheduled for presentation in 2017 – provided we can find willing and able presenters.

I also want to remind members about a couple of issues from our hosts, Woodworkers Supply (WWS). First, the office next to our meeting room is off limits. Please respect the privacy of the WWS staff that uses that space. And second, we need to avoid parking near the loading dock during the meetings. Only folks with mobility issues and folks loading or unloading items should be parking inside the fence – and even they should park along the east fence, keeping the dock clear for shipping and receiving. WWS has been a gracious host. Let’s respect their rules.

And finally, I want to remind all NMWT members who also hold AAW membership to let a member of the NMWT Board of Directors know if you want your name tossed into the hat for a chance at a scholarship to one of three prestigious woodturning schools. We will hold the drawing during the December meeting. Remember, there will be no regular raffle and no Instant Gallery this month! I look forward to seeing you all Saturday, December 3!

 

Larry Linford, President
