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

Hi Ladies and Gents -     

LarryLinford Jan2016

Well, it may not feel like it outside, but December is here and Christmas is just around the corner!  

 

And just to help get you in the mood, we’ll be having our annual gift exchange at the upcoming December meeting! So don’t forget to bring one or more woodturning-related gifts (tools, blanks, jigs, videos, books, finished turnings, etc.) to the meeting. In order to receive a raffle ticket, you must bring at least one gift. Many folks bring more than one, and the club also brings some turning blanks from World of Wood, so there’s a really good chance you’ll leave with more than one gift.  

 

But the second part of the December meeting is even more important - the part when we select the topics to be covered during next year’s meetings. It is important to have as much input as possible, so please plan on staying for this part of the meeting. We start with a brief review of topics presented the last couple of years, as well as topics suggested for 2017 but not presented for one reason or another. Suggestions for 2018 will be taken from the floor, and then everyone gets a chance to vote for 10 topics.

 

And that will be my last order of business as President of the New Mexico Woodturners.  I have sincerely enjoyed leading the club the last two years, and I will leave a parting piece of advice: Get involved! I did, and I don’t regret one minute of it. Remember, even a club as dynamic as ours can fade away without the active participation of a lot of different folks.

 

Turn on!

Larry Linford
