I get lots of Pm’s asking how to do things or to critique folks projects and I’m always willing to help. When folks comment about me being and expert I always tell them the truth ,I’m an advanced beginner. For the first 22 years as a woodworker I was self taught, well me.Norm and Fine Woodworking. But in the last 4 years or so I have had a mentor. ‘Charles Neil” those of you that know me know I’m a big Charles Neil fan. Charles is a real innovator and great talent when it comes to woodworking and finishing. I’ve also brought up more that once his on line show “Mastering Woodworking” this show takes you step by step making a project no matter what your level of woodworking is. Charles next project is making a grandfather clock(tall clock), not just any tall clock but a replica of a Townsend tall clock ,considered by many to be the ultimate American cabinet and furniture maker of all times.
Why I’m posting this is I received and e-mail from Charles offering a FREE trial of his on line Mastering Woodworking Show to all of the folks who have purchased his blotch control (a great product). I e-mailed Charles and asked if the LJ members could have the same Free trial HE Said YES! .Even paying the low monthly charge is a bargain but Free you can’t beat that plus it’s his best project so far. Try it you’ll like it, What do you have to loose?
Here’s the LJ’s offer Charles E-mailed me. ENJOY!
