Hey Guys and Gals
If you ever thought of making something a mark above anything you have ever made before then tune in to
Charles Neils blog (it’s FREE) were he’s back to making his historic Bombe chest on chest. Charles starting this project back in December with a student that had to leave for a couple weeks during the holidays but now There back at it with ton’s of great photos and step by step up dates. Maybe you don’t think your ready for a Bombe chest but you might see that it’s easier than you think with Charles approach. And if your thinking you might just want to go for it, there might even be patterns available a once in a life time opportunity. This is on my must build list so I will be tuning in for sure.

Hey Jim. Thanks for keeping us up to date on everything Charles Neil is doing. I hope he is compensating you with freebies. If he is, I’d like to promote him profusely too. Keep up the good work.

Hey Keith
Yes lots of freebies like how to build a bombe chest on chest. :-)) I just think Charles has a lot to offer to other woodworkers and new ways to do things. Not every body can build the kind of stuff you do. Hey come to think of it want to send me some freebies to promote you? LOL

I must confess that I have ALL of Charles Neil’s dvd’s and watch them over and over again. He has just a different down home style of showing the viewer about all types of woodworking, he is like a friend that you are standing beside as he shows you all that he knows very willingly. Charles may not know the many friends he really has because of what he does but veiwers like my wife and I call him friend and thank him for his efforts.

Hey Jim, thanks for that info. I saw an antique bomb chest in FWW a few years ago that was valued at $4M. Don’t be surprised if you get a visit from Homeland Security after this blog. lol

Hey Jim thanks for turning me on to charles neil. I am now a member of his mastering woodworking class and i love it i cant wait until thursday night for the new episode. I like the way you can watch him get into trouble with a project and then work his way out of it. Its unlike any other woodworking show i have seen definitely worth the money.
