Welcome to the inaugural edition of our eNewsletter. After 15 years and 18 issues of the Dog River Review on paper, we have made the jump to this new format. You will receive more in-depth information, better photography, and multimedia content, all on a quarterly basis. Since we had been mailing nearly 8,000 copies of each edition, we will save reams of paper and a few trees as well.

Our featured articles showcase a varied collection of furniture: an elegant combination of materials and uniquely integrated technology for a Manhattan law firm; a series of light weight granite reconfiguring tables in Washington, DC; a newly developed folding leg table to complement our Arbor table collection; and our exclusive solution for microphones that spin out of sight. On a different note, our last article is about the historic Northfield Graded School here in our hometown. Formerly abandoned, this 1877 post and beam 8 room schoolhouse is a woodworkers dream, and is being renovated into spaces that will be used to benefit the children of Northfield. Annie Gould, of Wall/Goldfinger, has been heavily involved with the project for the last three years.

Last year was the best year in our 33 year history, and this year is off to a very strong start. We are investing in new woodworking equipment, and we have upgraded our financial, estimating, and drafting software. As many of you know, we have also developed an extremely quick and accurate method of rendering your furniture concepts. We will feature this capability in a forthcoming issue of our new eNewsletter.

So we hope you enjoy this first edition of the Wall/Goldfinger eNewsletter. Our goal is to provide you with timely news that will inform, perhaps entertain, and, we trust, ultimately enhance your future projects.

And, as always, please feel free to give us your feedback . . . we value your advice on how to make this publication even more useful. John Wall
