2019 January Meeting Info

Monday- 6PM- January14, 2019   Enchanted Woodturners Meeting

We will meet at Early College Opportunity (ECO) Woodworking Shop, see driving & parking diagram attached, and look at the school’s location on Google Satellite to see it better.

Subjects:  1.   Tips, Tricks, Jigs and Fixtures

            2.  Solving Your Turning Problems  

Presenters:  Our Members  

The first half of the program is all about Tips, Tricks, Jigs, Fixtures.  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 not 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.  


1.  email  Derek if you are bringing a flash drive for any part of your presentation or if you need any other computer or projection support.  Derek Roff <derek@unm.edu>

2.   email Taz what you plan to do so Taz can plan the meeting .  TAZ BRAMLETTE [tazwellb@msn.com ]

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 chaptermay give you renewed inspiration.  Well, it should give you renewed inspiration.

So come to the meeting!

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

See you there,


TEW President
