The Enchanted WoodTrurners of Santa Fe NM

September 11 2017 Meeting

Monday- 6PM- September 11, 2017   Enchanted Woodturners Meeting
We meet at Santa Fe High School Woodworking Shop look at the high school’s location on Google Satellite to see it better.

Agenda is  1.   Jigs, Fixtures, and Tips and also – 2. Solving Your Turning Problems!! Presenters:  Our Members
The first half of the program is all about Jigs, Fixtures, and Tips.  All of us have a few special jigs or gadgets that help make some part of our turning process easier, faster or safer.  The Jigs, Fixtures and Tips may be simple or complex, but they help solve an important or annoying problem in an original way.  It may be something that you invented, improved, or learned from an outside source that many of us have never seen.  We encourage you to pick two or three of these clever solutions, and present them to the rest of us.  There is so much knowledge and experience in our group, so we will all come away with several new and useful ideas.

For the Presenters:  Please email Derek Roff <derek@unm.edu> in the next week or so, and tell him in a few words what you will be presenting, so that he can organize the order of presentation.


The second half of the program will be solving your turning problems, by letting the rest of us help you to solve those problems.  Do you have a turning that is giving you trouble?  Something that inspired you at the start, but now has you scratching your head about how to finish it off?  Are you wondering about what to do for the base, the rim, or the finial?  Is a finish giving you fits?  Is the form a flop?  Is your dye job dying?  Or perhaps you have a piece of wood that is so special, that you can’t quite figure out what to do with it.  Bring in those problems, and let our members help you solve those problems.  Sharing your problems and getting input from other members our chapter may give you renewed inspiration.  Well, itshould give you renewed inspiration.


So come to the meeting!

We will all have a wonderful time & don’t be late; or come early to visit with friends.
