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

Welcome to the shortest month of the year! Don’t forget to renew your membership to New Mexico Woodturners!  We’re planning a lot of woodturning activities. First, the February 2018 demonstrator is Ralph Watts. I always look forward to Ralph’s work in our instant gallery: Ralph combines unique creativity with exquisite craftsmanship. In his last demonstration for NMWT, Ralph showed us some really great tips for boxes, and I look forward to seeing what he will share in 2018.

Our previously planned March class for spindle turning is on hold while we seek time and space that’s convenient for the instructor and the class host (two different people and garages, which makes coordination challenging)—but this class is a very high priority for your club officers, and we look forward to doing this sooner rather than later. Volunteers to help organize the class would certainly help, no experience in woodturning needed (but some experience in organizing would be helpful!)

I’d like to encourage those of you who are not members of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) to join. Check out the video at https://vimeo.com/230292775 for a sample AAW resource! You can try a free 60-day “web-only” membership or a $20 3-month “web-and-print” membership. Go to www.woodturner.org and check the membership links.

Last but not least: We moved our 2018 professional demonstrator visit from May 2018 to April 2018. Read the newsletter for more details, and RSVP your intent to take a hands-on workshop with Jerry Kermode as soon as possible. I was Jerry’s video assistant at the 2015 AAW Symposium in Pittsburgh PA. Jerry is not only a very skilled turner, but he is an outstanding teacher. I personally find that a 1-day clinic with a professional is a great way of improving your woodturning!
