    Tom Shirley kicks off the new EMGW membership year with a woodworking piece that he completed last spring. 
    Tom was contacted by the administration of the Alden House Museum to build a replica model of the historic house of John and Priscilla Alden in Duxbury, MA. 

    The model is on display as part of an exhibit at the museum.   Apart from the woodworking aspects, Tom's article describes how the measurements and overall design of the original house were made and how he approached building the model to scale.

    This is Ken Zoller's second entry for the Featured Piece of the Month.  It's obvious Ken likes to take on new challenges.  It helps when he executes spectacular pieces like his latest piece, the Pembroke Table, as you will see when reading his article.  There's nothing like success for motivation.

    Ken's article is also a fine piece.  Ken took pictures while building the table.  As you will see there are many stages and challenges along the way.  Ken has a fine way of describing his process and lessons learned.  Enjoy the read and if you have a moment drop him an e-line.  His email address can be found in the Members directory.

    This month Andrew steps out into a new "cut" of his Bevel Cut column.  This thoughtful article lays out tables of brands that belong to the parent company, or as the title asks, who owns what?

    For example, did you know that Porter-Cable belongs to the already merged conglomerate of Stanley Decker and Stanley.  DeWalt too!  How about Ryobi and Milwaukee (among others) are brands owned by Techtronic Industries?  Yep.  Skil and others are owned by Chevron.  OK, how about, who owns saw blade makers Freud and Diablo?

    You probably know that Jet and Powermatic are owned jointly by JPW Industries.  But did you know that JPW and other manufacturing companies (Compass Health and TTG) are owned by TENEX Capital Management. [Ed.]

    RIDGID is an interesting company.  Two conglomerates own different lines of RIDGID's business.  The list goes on.  You can read about it and tables of these ownership portfolios in Andrew's article Who Own What?
