About New Mexico Woodturners

The club was founded in 1992 by a group of dedicated wood turners who recognized the value in coming together on a regular basis for sharing tips and techniques, helping each other gain turning proficiency, and expanding what was often a solitary hobby or vocation into a more social and interpersonal setting.

The club has been associated with the American Association of Woodturners as a Local Chapter from its inception.
