"We're so excited that Randy has chosen to join us," said Ted Hall, founder and CEO of ShopBot Tools. "He's highly respected by fellow woodworkers. He has been a champion of CNC from the beginning, and an inspiration to businesses and schools working to integrate CNC technology into their shops and classrooms."
