I just finished watching the two disc DVD set by Charles Neil . I own almost all of Charles DVD sets and thought having viewed Charles finishing A-Z beyond the books, a ten disc set ,full of great finishing info, that there would not be that much new for me to learn ,but as usual just when I think I have picked up all the know information Charles has to offer he brings all new ideas and details to light. Of course there was some review of how finishing works but there were also things not touched upon before. This DVD set helps even folks with very little knowledge about finishing to find a way to solve everyday finishing problems and how to avoid them in the first place, it also explains how certain finishes work or don’t very well. Charles has 40years of finishing and woodworking experience and has written articles in fine woodworking about finishing and woodworking plus he has been teaching finishing classes for years. If in doubt about Charles ability just take a look at his work and finish on many fine pieces of furniture listed on his web site. This set is only $29.95 a real bargain considering that just one of his tips could save you hundreds of dollars .Charles puts all this information forward in easy to understand language, as if you dropped by his shop asking for finishing help. My rating 10 stars but I can only rate 5 here.
