Hey guys and gals

I Just got notice about Charles Neil giving 50% off on his DVDs and other fun stuff. I’ve brought up Charles DVDs before and a couple folks said they couldn’t afford it right now, well here’s your chance to scoop up all that great know how that Charles has to offer , His Videos make it easy for you to learn skills or build that one project you thought you’d have to wait years before you knew enough to build. I know, I have most of Charles Videos and have learned a ton after watching them.
Get em while they last.

Here’s Charles notice …..

Hey Guys!

The special pricing on our DVD Titles at 50% off is being extended until we return from Tucson, AZ next week. So, if you weren’t able to take advantage 10/10-10/12, you still have the opportunity, your DVDs WILL NOT ship until we return from Tucson though, so take a gander at the titles and make your selections. To get your 50% Savings off the purchase of TWO DVD Titles, use coupon code ‘constant2012’ there is no space between ‘constant’ and 2012!

Don’t forget Charles will be in the Tucson Woodcraft store this coming week end. I wish I was there !

Thanks Jim,

Although I have high esteem for Charles, I think the DVD are overpriced.
Even with the 50% off.

Hopefully there will be an even better offer.

We are all entitled to our opinions . To me their a bargain at full price. I can’t Imagine filming for hours on end and the editing ,packaging and shipping besides all that that you get an expert that’s sharing all of his know how and tricks and tips that most of the other guys don’t have a clue how to do. Some of Charles videos have 10-12 disc at about 13 hours at $135 full price that’s a little over $10 hr and that’s full price. We are lucky to get someone to weed are garden for that. We all have our own ideas about value some folks only want what they can get for free . They usually get what the pay for. In my business I have some folks that want me to reduce my prices below my cost, if I sell below my cost it’s no longer a business it’s a hobby that I’m paying people to participate with me in.

Let’s try this $79 divided by 2 =50% of or $39.50

I respect your opinion Jim.

I, for one, don’t want anything for free.
I have a good collection of DVDs from some of the best in this trade.
They were all priced from $10 to $20. Some multi-DVD series were about $5 a pop.

Not including production, those DVD are produced by the thousands for few pennies each.

This said, his multi-pack DVD are well priced but his singles are expensive; just my opinion.

Thank you lanwater
I respect your opinion also. I guess your shopping different places than I am . No one is forced to buy anything they don’t want. I don’t believe Charles has his DVDs made by the thousands. you would have to ask him. I just posted this for folks that might be interested.

Charles, I’ve been thinking about trying one of your CDs, and this may be the time to do it (if I can find the cash).

I don’t know if you would want to do this, but it would be a very nice gesture to offer a coupon worth a couple of dollars (or less) to your LumberJock friends. I don’t know, maybe this wouldn’t be possible if you have already cut prices on the CDs. You have to make some kind of profit.

Thanks for the post, Jim
