Location: Chesapeake Bay region, MD

I worked in Corporate America for my career; and am very fortunate to have thoroughly enjoyed both the traditional corporate ladder, within Finance; and, then working as a principal inside business start-ups, turnarounds, and emerging growth environments, During this time, I've spent approximately 20 years living overseas. Currently, I limit my work to contract-based consulting into consulting companies, and business process consulting into local companies. I'm a Certified Public Accountant (CPA); hold a MBA-Finance; and have had 4 articles published in national journals.

Regarding woodworking, I can make anything at twice the price, and without a set delivery date. Mostly, I'm transitioning from rough carpentry to making things that I'm not ashamed of.

My shop includes a Unisaw, DW735 Planer, PM 6" jointer, DeWalt Miter Saw, and a Hammer N4400 bandsaw. Hand power tools are primarily Bosch, with a Festool Domino. For Dust Collection, I use an upgraded Clearvue 1800, run through 6" 2729 conduit.

I'm a believer in "Can't we just get along" - I find too many people who want to grind an ax, or 'make a statement'; and lament that some choose to do this on Lumberjocks.

Lumberjocks is the best of the woodworking communities. I’ve joined a quit several, unfortunately; however, I find Lumberjocks to be challenging, informative, and politely opinionated.

I hope that I can contribute the same amount as I learn.

I really appreciated your comment on my thread. I showed it to my wife. Thanks it was very encouraging. Sometimes doing what you feel is right by people seems prohibitive. Like the saying “nice guys don’t always win”. Anyway, it is in our blood between my wife and I to want to be honest, caring and always trying to do right for those who work for us and those we work for. I am just saying at times trying to do what is right and then feeling like we are getting burned in the end is discouraging. And so it was very nice to read your comments on our thread. Thanks.

With that out of the way. Reading your small bio it looks like you have a great background and experience in finance / business. I wish I were better at the business / finance stuff. We have a bookkeeper that helps keep me in line since that is our weakness.

As for your shop, it sounds as though you are well equipped. Woodworking is rewarding and fun so I encourage you to continue having fun making saw dust.
