The Enchanted WoodTrurners of Santa Fe NM

October 14 2019 Michael Mocho

Monday- 6PM- October 14, 2019   Enchanted Woodturners Meeting

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

Subject:  Making Connections

Presenter:  Michael Mocho

In Michael’s presentation, you will learn quick and effective techniques for making accurate connections between parts, such as lids, finials, plugs, inlaid rings and boxes made with various turned components. Michael will demonstrate simple tricks to assure accurate drilling, and strategies for integrating moving parts into your work with use of brass sleeves and ball-and-socket joints.


Michael Mocho has been a full-time craftsman since 1976 with extensive experience in furniture design, contract woodturning, architectural millwork, pattern making, and stringed musical instruments.  He has completed residencies at the Arrowmont School of Craft, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, and the International Turning Exchange program at the Woodturning Center in Philadelphia. He is known for his intricate containers that often combine bent wood with turned, carved, and textured components, which have won numerous awards and are in many private and public collections.

Michael has been invited to teach at many of the top craft schools across the USA, and has presented demonstration and hands-on classes for regional, national, and international symposia, as well as to over 75 AAW chapters in the USA and Canada.  Michael works in a custom millwork shop in Albuquerque.

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

“Show & Tell” please bring at least one “good” piece to brag about, and one “mistake/bad” piece to explain or ask what went wrong.
