News flash LJ central

STUMPY NUBS is a member of Charles Neil’s mastering woodworking show. I noticed Stumpy commenting on Charles Neils blog and asked Charles about it and he said stumpy was a member of the mastering woodworking show, who would have thunk. , Charles has a special going on right now to sign up. I guess it was to good a deal for good old stump to pass up.
I think it’s a bargain at the regular price.

Here’s a link

I agree, it’s completely worth it at “regular price”. Charles doesn’t just zip through a project and show you what he can do. He shows different ways for YOU to accomplish the same result regardless of your skill level. After all, it’s obvious that his intent is to advance all of our skill levels (and those who like to comment about Charles being long winded should really be ashamed of how snobby they’re being towards those that haven’t yet gained the skills that they have. Just have some tolerance/patience or simply fast forward while those with lower skill levels learn what you already know). Anyone that would like to see what they can learn to do, look at my project gallery. Charles taught me and he can teach anyone wanting to learn, as well.

Hey Pat
here’s a copy from Charles blog.

“ABOUT MASTERING WOODWORKING WITH CHARLES NEIL WEEKLY SHOW
In 2009 we introduced a weekly woodworking show via our web site, “Mastering Woodworking with Charles Neil” airs a new episode every Thursday night at 7:00pm EST. Our goal in producing this show is to increase your knowledge, build your skills, offer tips, tricks, simplified methods and grow your confidence to build anything you can imagine in your woodworking shop”
He also has discounts for members from time to time on some of the products he sells.
He may take one project(very cool projects) and build it over a few weeks explaining many techniques and tricks as he goes along or just have a general subject like right now he’s covering tables all types . Even though I have a good number of years under my belt as a woodworking I always learn something new from the mastering woodworking show whatever he’s making. I don’t know if the present deal includes them or not but you can get DVDs of the shows you subscribe to. If you have questions, email Sherri , sherri@charlesneilwoodworking.com

The builds so far have been: Corner Cupboard, Low Boy (with Cabriole legs), Hanging Cupboard, Blanket Chest, Slant Front Desk w/Secretary (split bonnet, hidden compartments, serpintine drawers), and currently finishing up Tables. Shows post every Thursday and are about an hour in length (sometimes longer, sometimes less), depending on that week’s lesson(s). You’ll be able to watch them directly on your computer or you can download them to burn onto a DVD or watch them on your TV or whatever you have to watch DVDs on (depending on how tech. oriented you are).

Yes, I am a member, and a HUGE fan. I know I once was not a “Charles Neil Guy” to say the least, but I’ve spent a great deal of time talking to him over the last month and watching hours of his video. And I came to an epiphany…

He’s not an “actor” like a lot of people who make videos are (which may be why some, including myself, criticized his videos), he’s a ”teacher” like you would be LUCKY to get if you went to collage. Every video is exactly like a hands on woodworking class. You don’t just watch him build a project like the other videos out there. He tells you what he’s doing, why he does it that way, how he learned that it was the best way to do it through experience, other ways that it could be done, and what he’s learned the hard way not to do.

For example: You might watch a series of videos on building a table (the latest set he’s been offering) and you don’t just build one. You build four or five different ones, each with a different design, different joinery, different challenges, different types of wood, different finishes… when you’re done you are now an expert, not on ONE style of table, but you have the skills and confidence to build any table you ever want to build for the rest of your life!

But he does all this with the tools many have in their shops, and if he is using somehitng he thinks you may not have access to, he’ll show you how to do the same thing without it!

Some may say it’s not cheap. But stop looking at it as a video subscription and start considering what it really IS: an apprenticship with a 40 year veteran craftsman. Those ususally cost a ton of money, and nobody ever regrets a chance to learn at the side of a master when they get the opportunity, yet you can do it in your own shop for less than some people spend in wood glue!

Nice Job explaining what the shows all about in the past Carl & Jim. We know that the next project is the GREAT Box and after that I think it will be a Free standing 6’ Clock.

The other great thing about Charles’s shows is to be able to all your questions. In my opinion I don’t think Charles “does not talk a project to death” which I have seen on other shows. He shows the work being done with better and better camera work.

Wow Jim I couldn’t agree more. I guess anyone that thinks the regular price is to much can take advantage of this special pricing. I’ve made the same point many times about having at home lessons for pennies on the dollar.

Another way to look at it is…you are an observer looking over Charles’s shoulder while he builds a project and he is talking his way through the build. In addition, you get to see ‘real life’ problems, or issues as he likes to call them, and how he works around and/or fixes them. They are not left on the video cutting room floor. Actually, I think this is the best part…and is what sets his show apart from other shows. Everyone runs into some types of problems when building a project and when a show is staged (like many other shows) and the problems are solved ‘off-camera’ you lose out on that knowledge. In addition, these are real life projects (see Carl’s list) that may take 10 plus weeks to finish and not a scaled down project, like a step stool, to fit within a 30 minute time slot.

Given the new price structure, I highly recommend you give it a try…..

You can get a look at it for free. He has a few projects on the site (check out the pie safe one) which are free and are much like the ones in the subscription service. Only the pay service is a bit more in depth.

Everthing you watch you can download and replay it as you build the project. Asking question is the best all his answers are from his own expericences not someone elses. Charles will and does ask for suggestions and our input on future builds. Charles does not edit mistakes and shows how to prevent the ones he thinks we will make. He and the wood whisperer did a joint build two diffent styles that was pretty cool. There is a varity most think he does one style he will be the first to tell you not so. If your looking to better your wood working projects and or finishing you can do that. I’ve built the shaker clock that I was very proud of. The best thing I get is building without plans using a story stick, and sneak up on it is a life savior and leave yourself and out. I can only speak for myself I got my moneys worth ten times over since joining from the first show. If you can’t tell I a Charles Neil fan.

Argh. I’m a sucker for a sale. But I’m wondering if my skills are far enough along for me to be able to make good use of his material. Any thoughts?

Actually he teaches each skill you need as he goes along. That’s why it takes like 20 hours of film to complete a project. (That and he sometimes makes several versions of each project).

Here’s the way i look at it. If you would go to a woodworking trade school given the chance (and time… and money), then this is for you. If you are only interested in making the occasional cutting board or birdhouse with no desire to make furniture for yourself or others (and there’s nothing wrong with that) than it may not be worth the time and money to sign up. That’s my honest opinion…
