New Mexico Woodturners

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


President's Corner

 Greetings Woodturners!       

It is May, which means our meeting presentation will be by world-renowned turner, Trent Bosch. Trent currently lives in Colorado, but travels the country conducting workshops in the various techniques he has perfected. His work is quite distinctive and varied, and often done with tools he has modified and/or created himself. Many of these he produces for sale to other turners.

In addition to the all-day club demonstration on Saturday, May 6, Trent will host four full days of hands-on workshops for 6 turners per day at the home of John Ellis. These workshops will run from 9 AM to 4 PM, Sunday, May 7 through Wednesday, May 10.  Lathes and accessories will be provided for the workshops, but you must bring your own turning tools. Attendees will be selected by random drawing if more than 24 people want to register. By the time this newsletter is released, attendees will likely know who they are. Please remember that there will probably be a waiting list, so it is imperative that you notify John Ellis if you are unable to attend your assigned workshop.

Individual registration for the workshops is $100. (Assistance is available via the club’s Red Hollanbeck Scholarship fund for any who find this a hardship.) Also, lunch will be available at the Saturday presentation and all four of the hands-on workshops. Each lunch is $5.

And remember, due to this special presentation, there will be no Instant Gallery at the May meeting, so leave your fine pieces at home!

One final note: According to our latest membership printout, a fair number of members still have not paid their dues for 2017. Bringing in presenters like Trent Bosch represents a substantial expenditure for the club. If you are not current, please pay your dues ASAP! (It’s only $25, folks, for the entire year!)

See you on May 6!

Larry Linford, President
