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 One and All!     

LarryLinford Jan2016

November is usually pretty quiet for us as the year begins to wind down. But this November meeting will feature a real treat as our presenter will be long-time member, but infrequent

demonstrator, Jim McLain. Jim is a highly regarded turner who shows his work in a number of galleries. He is perhaps best known for his acclaimed “Chaco Series,” in which he has created numerous hollow forms that he has carved to resemble prehistoric Indian ruins. His November presentation is entitled “Stone Wave Hollow Forms.” It should be a sellout crowd!

But November is also an important meeting for the club as we hold our annual election of Board Officers: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. As is customary of late, all four of the current officers will be stepping down after two years in office. The Nominations Committee will have a slate to nominate, but nominations are welcome from the floor!

We also need to be thinking ahead to December, as this is our annual two-part agenda. First, we will have our popular annual gift exchange. (Remember - If you want to select a gift, you must bring one to add to the table.)

And when those festivities are over, we will select topics for next year’s club presentations.

Have a safe and amusing Halloween, and we’ll see you Saturday!
