New Mexico Woodturners

Click to get map and directions to NMWT meeting

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

Happy New Year!

 I’d like to first thank all the club volunteers for their service, and especially the club officers.

In 2017, our club officers were: Larry Linford, Hy Tran, Rick Judd, Kathy Knorr (all elected) and Jim Breeden, Mike Gardner, Gale Greenwood, Derek Roff, Roger Umber, Dean Cross, Ron Bahm, Scott Eckstein, Greg Hoefler, Eric Hester, Bill Mantelli, and John Ellis (appointed).

For 2018, the elected officers are Hy Tran, Rick Judd, Bill Baca, and Steve Gallegos. The appointed chairs are Bill Mantelli (State Fair), Mike Gardner (web), Derek Roff (video), Roger Umber (newsletter), Dean Cross (raffle), Scott Eckstein (equipment), Kathy Knorr (photo), Eric Hester (Santa Fe green wood), Greg Hoefler (Albuquerque green wood), John Ellis (professionals), Aaron Tinnin (membership) and Larry Linford (past president).

We are looking for a few more appointed chairs: Do you like donuts on meeting day? Or would you prefer donut holes, Danish, or perhaps celery sticks? That’s our logistics chair position. We also would like a club librarian (keep all the club videos, and help get them checked out and checked in). Please come and see a club officer if you would like to help with any of these activities!
