I received my long awaited DVD set “Cases And Bases” by Charles Neil. Charles is a one of a kind he’s as real as it gets and as knowledgeable as anyone I’ve ever watched there Videos or read there books . I own most of Charles DVDs and have been more than pleased with every one I’ve ever purchased or seen on you tube.
This DVD set has a total of 8 disc. covering every thing you could imagine and more about many difference
styles of base and case work and techniques dealing with everything from kitchen cabinets to Bombe chest.
As a 20 year professional furniture maker and cabinet maker every time Charles would start a particular subject I would say to my self OH I know how to do that, WRONG! I may have done the that particular operation before but Charles always as a unique ,innovative and simplified way to do some of the most complicated and even the more simple pieces. As he would say”it just makes sense”. If you want to learn more about building furniture This DVD set can’t be beat . The only thing I didn’t like about it is that it ended ,even though it’s 600 minutes long( 9 hours) it seemed to just fly by.
