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.

Activities include woodturning exhibitions, live demonstratons, and videos on a range of turning topics


President's Corner

Greetings and Happy New Year!

2016 was pretty good for NMWT, but I’m hoping for an even grander 2017!

I want to begin with a special thanks to Jake Jacobson and World of Wood for the donation of $200 in turning blanks for our December gift exchange.  Jake is awfully good to the club, and I hope you’ll take the time to thank him as you visit World of
Wood in the coming months.

We’re going to kick off 2017 with a revival of a project we initiated in 2015: Beads of Courage Boxes. We have received 16 turning blanks of big leaf maple from North Woods, each measuring 6” x 6” x 2.5”. You will need two blanks to make a bowl, and you will need to supply a lid made of wood you supply.

If you are not familiar with Beads of Courage Boxes, they are for children who have serious medical conditions and are undergoing often
scary and painful treatments. The hospital staff let the kids pick special, fancy beads as rewards for the courage exhibited in enduring the treatments.
Many of these children have sizeable collections of these beads (often numbering in the thousands), and they obviously need a container
in which to store them.

Beads of Courage specifies minimum interior dimensions of 6” diameter by 5” deep. The New Mexico Woodturners will be purchasing some Beads of
Courage logo beads to attach to your creation.  This year, we will require a commitment from anyone taking blanks to make a Beads of Courage Bowl. (We will take names.)

In another development, we have arranged with the State Fair to have a special display in the Woodturning area where all the Beads of Courage Bowls will be displayed. What a great way to show the public our community spirit.

Please plan to participate in this worthy program. Even if you don’t get a pair of blanks, make a bowl of your own wood. The kids will love you
for it!

Larry Linford, President
