Observant readers will notice a new name on the cover of this magazine, but rest assured that you will still find the trusted contents and informative expert information you have come to expect from us. Beginning with this issue, the name of the magazine changes from CabinetMaker+FDM to FDMC.
Since I joined this enterprise in 1998, there have been a lot of changes in the publications and industries they represent. Back then, I took over as editor of CabinetMaker magazine and focused its direction on small shops under 20 employees. Our sister magazine FDM targeted woodworking businesses larger than 20 employees. At that time there was also a third magazine in the group, udm, which was aimed at the upholstery industry. One of the first big changes was when consolidations in the upholstery industry spelled the demise of udm, but both CabinetMaker and FDM continued to carry some stories related to upholstered furniture as they fit their markets.
