About three weeks ago, I let everyone know that Charles Neil had invited me to build a mahogany lowboy in my shop, following him along as he builds a mahogany lowboy on his, “Mastering Woodworking” series subscription webisode. He will furnish all the material, patterns and know-how. Charles has started his webisode and is now into his third week, having covered how to get started on veneering, and great details on making cabriole legs and how to plan the morticing and now putting the legs on and beginning assembly. Last week I received a package. It was from Timber Mate and the Workshop of Charles Neil. After opening it, there was a whole quart of mahogany Timer Mate wood filler. I thought, wow, Charles must think I’m really going to mess up this build-along, but after touching base with him, I realized that you can use Timer Mate as a grain filler and that’s why Timber Mate and Charles had sent so much.
Today Fed-Ex brought three large packages from Charles and tomorrow I’ll post some photos of what’s inside.
