Hi Gang
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!

Hard to beat that deal Jim. I do have one question though – does this exclusively cover 30 days of the tall clock or could I watch part of a different series that is more my speed?

OK, I just watched the first of two videos on making a step stool with a hand support pole – so YES, you can watch earlier videos, not just the most current one. This is really a good offer.

I’ll back up Jim….Have most all of Charles Neil’s DVD’s which is my way for slow learning. If you want advice from a master Charles will give it. He has stopped internet chatting and is focused on his internet show and the many customer builds he says yes to.

I have referred people to Charles on chair Building. The “BEST” DVD out there and most comprehensive. And there is a bunch of short educational videos on the Charles Neil woodworking Homepage!

Please remember that Charles is pretty close to a One Man, ( and assistant) and two women shop, so lets help keep his educational materials alive!

The Blotch control has been reviewed by the wood whisperer! does a stand up job to reduce and prevent blotching from the porous sections of wood that darken with staining!
