Topic tags/keywords: question

While staying in touch with Charles Neil I asked how many folks signed up for the trial of “Mastering Woodworking on line show. To my surprise he said he had 80 folks signed up and many had signed up beyond the trial time period already even though the trial period is not up yet. Since I posted the MWW trial on LJs ,I wanted to thank you all who have given his program a try and of course to those who have signed up beyond the trial period and those who still will sign up.
Charles is still hoping to get your input on what everyone thought of the program whether you signed up long term or not. So if you could either leave your input here or make a comment on Charles forum it would be a big help to let him know what you thought and any improvements he can make. Don’t forget to give your input on the trial shows.

Many times folks ask what do I get out of this and the answer is ,Through the support of MWW Charles you can help keep the show going and have Charles pass on his great wealth of knowledge,this helps all levels of woodworkers and in turn I get to keep watching the show just like the rest of you.(sorry no pink Cadillacs to disclose) :))

Thanks Jim

Very good…

That’s a nice $1,756 raise in pay per month…

I’d say the trial paid off!

Jim, I did not know about this and still don’t really understand what this is.
Is it an Online woodworking show? How much is it to join? and is there a way to view it then decide if i want to join? sorry for being stupid, but I thought I’d ask a couple of questions!
Thanks Robert!

Thanks, Jim, for arrnaging the free trial period for us.

I certainly enjoyed the entertainment, but I don’t think I’ll be subscribing.

I already sent private comments to the website.

Joe those numbers would be good if everyone that took the trial signed up but as good as his MWW show is I don’t think Charles had a 100% sign up.

You can see if there is still one week left of the trial and perhaps you can sign up for that. Here is the e-mail for Sherri Charles office manager. she can help with any other questions too.

I know that Charles has a 100% satisfaction guarantee on he videos but I think you pay for at least one month with his MWW show . I’m not an official spokes person for Charles so here’s a link to the membership page on his website.

Thanks for your input Jim

if you wish to see the show, you get 4 weeks free from the date you sign up , I think ( :) ), Jim is correct, email Sherri, ( , you will get the current show, fortunately or unfortunately we have spent the last 3 or 4 weeks, designing and making a shop made pin router,, because the current project is a John Townsend Tall Clock, ( grandfather clock )which the orginal is in the Metropolitan Museum In NYC , and we had to come up with a way to make some of the circular moldings as close to the orginal as possible, thus the pin router and it has evolved a bit, but we sre now proceeding with the clock, but remember the show isnt about just the clock, its figuring out and learning ways to work wood, safely and effectively, also there is a spice chest, Knife caddy, and some step stool projects as well Our show definately is not for everyone, it is a bit advanced, however like the previous listed projects we try to add simpler and alternative projects to address all skill levels, but the hope is to increase skill’s, in with the clock, we will be doing some picture/mirror frames, but not your average typical, the development of the simple pin router , made pf plywood and dowels for the most part, will allow us to get quite creative, come check it out, noting ventured nothing gained, dont like it, ya lost nothing, pretty simple I think,

I did not give it a try because of time constraints. August is the only month of guaranteed nice weather in Water World; aka, Western WA. I’m not sure how many others may be on vacations ect this month before everyone goes back to school. Maybe a late fall or winter trial might get a good response as well. ?? I like Charles style and he is certainly knowledgeable!
