I’ve been away for awhile – I had to put away the woodworking for my day job, and am re-connecting. When I left, Baleigh was touting itself as a ‘Paid Sponsor’; holding Prize Drawing, and in-general touting its equipment...

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.
I'm new to good woodworking; and not very handy - I can make anything at twice the price, and without a set delivery date. Mostly, I'm transitioning from rough carpentry (fixing my forever-in-need home) to making things I can use inside it.
My shop includes a Unisaw, DW735 Planer, PM 6" jointer, and vintage DeWalt Miter Saw, and a Hammer N4400 bandsaw. Hand power tools are primarily Bosch, with a Festool Domino. For Dust Collection, I'm installing a Clearvue 1800 (upgraded), 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' - if you want to do this, find the appropriate forum - LJ is not it.

The Festool Domino Tool created a large step-up in tenon joinery – I won’t get into the cost/benefit of the Tool, nor the pitched-camps debates from Festool lovers and distractors – the Domino is what it is; thank you Festool for...
Over the weekend, I took the opportunity to visit Felder’s East Coast Sales & Support center – the other two in the US are in California, I believe – for their Fall Open House. I was there for about 3 hours, looking at a larg...
I’m starting this blog as a prelude to a Project posting – the project is a work-in-progress Outdoor Bench, based on the Fine Woodworking (FW) May/June 2008 article. I have acquired the plans from Fine Woodworking, and am now in the ...
