Charles, You contribution to woodworking, is unmatched. Your input is the whole enchilada! Thank you so much for your time and talent.
I enjoyed seeing you on steve ramsey's christmas video.
Hi Charles,I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for devoting so much of your time to helping us aspiring woodworkers improve our craft through your immense knowledge and expertise. You are a true inspiration to so many who seek to create future masterpieces like you do everyday.
Thank you for this website along with all your informational videos, books and forums. Together along with your personal contact via email and phone, you ease the nerves of so many who have been waiting for someone like to to help debunk the mystery of woodworking.
I don't know why you decided to devote so much time to teaching, but clearly you were meant to do it. Your calm and reassuring demeanor makes for a very inviting learning experience. Personally, I can say that you have helped to build my confidence in taking on more complex projects. I feel like I have taken my woodworking to the next level thanks to you. I'm convinced that there isn't a subject in woodworking that you can't demystify and make simple to understand. For years I have been looking for a website like yours that is all inclusive for the woodworker.
Let me finish by saying that I found your website by accident. I was looking for a way to deal with blotch. I saw your blotch control being featured on the Wood Whisperer. After I watched your explanation video on your product, I was hooked. I couldn't believe the result. I bought a quart, and never looked back. Ever since then, I have watched and bought so many of your products.
THANK YOU Charles Neil! You are the best and I appreciate everything you are doing.
Forever a fan!
Mr. Neil, I stumbled across this blog, and I'd like to thank you.
For:1. Sharing your experience and knowledge. What you're doing in this blog is priceless - you can't instill your talent though the web, but you can teach and inspire! This is what the internet should be about!
2.Some seriously good information here. I would have saved myself a lot of grief (being mostly self-taught) had I found your site sooner.
My only hope is that you, as the craftsman you clearly are, and the teacher you most definitely are, please don't stop!
Recently, I attended a Charles Neil Class in New Market, Virginia. Regardless of your experience in woodworking, you will leave the class with a wealth of information and techniques that you didn't have before attending the class. Charles is an excellent teacher with a wonderful teaching style that is easy to understand and comprehend. He openly shares forty years of woodworking experience and takes the time to ensure you not only understand how to do something but why it necessary. If you encounter a problem or make a mistake, he takes the time to work with you individually to solve the situation. I attended the class as a novice woodworker and somewhat intimidated by complicated wood projects but I left the class with the confidence to tackle more complex projects. Do yourself a favor, attend one of Charles Neil's classes.
I've been doing my first major remodeling project, and having a hell of a time trying to get my wood to come out the way I want it to. I've been constantly frustrated by advice ranging from mediocre to terrible. I finally decided to go on YouTube and see if I could find someone *actually proving* before my eyes that their method works, not just giving me armchair coaching. Well, that person was CN, and I ended up here. Keep up the good work!
G'Day Charles,Greetings from Australia. I have recently retired and am putting together a modest workshop. I have done some wood turning courses and loved every second of it. I don't expect to ever be really good at wood work, but I love it and look forward to many years of trying to make things. One of the many things that I have found very useful and extremely informative in your tutorials is the clear and easy to understand safety tips.Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge, it is very much appreciated.
Charles,I have been listening to your voice daily on You Tube as my husband hangs on your every word! We were both in Sperryville recently in a restaurant where you did the fabulous woodworking!
My husband has just retired and has built a beautiful workshop that he longed for all his life. I know he would love to visit yours. Do you allow anything like that?
Hello Charles , love your project videos . When are you going to post another ?
Hello Charles, your friend Jim Brokenbourgh sends his regards. Your skill is extraordinary! I feel like we're neighbors being from Nashville, TN. I'm a disabled sawyer who has started learning the woodworking trade. I have over 30,000 bft. of lumber and counting. All my friends and customers laugh when they find out that I'm not a woodworker. Well now I am, thanks to you and your videos. I have a highley figured wood collection and I'm making all my furniture by hand. Take care, best wishes Hugh~SoulShaker, Nashville Sawyer.
I am a carpenter, who through my being laid off due to the lack of construction work, has been spending a lot of time in the garage making things for the people in my life. As I search for knowledge about woodworking, in order to evolve my skill set and general understanding of the world, I have come across your name more than a few times (especially while spending time at LumberJocks.com). I am looking forward to learning from you, and I feel that I should preemptively say thank you. You are a revered teacher and human being. Take care.
Thanks Charles for all your very informative videos. I am not a woodworker but your words will inspire a new generation of woodworkers really love the website too, keep up the good work.Thank you Mr. Charles Neil.
I have been reading your emails concerning how you got started and the journey you have taken over these many years. I have enjoyed your life story and have found similar events that have taken place in my own life having run a small country craft business for a few years and doing craft shows. Thank you for sharing your words will inspire a new generation of woodworkers to never give up.
Thanks Charles for all you do. You are one of the best teachers I have seen. your fun and very informative. Thanks G
I am very pleased with your products that I have purchased. Your web page is well laid out. I first heard of you on youtube. Keep up the quality work.
just visiting your site every now and then.this time im researching finishing and I've always heard you have mastered it as well as other parts of this craft.i heard of you from prison .well let me put that that straight my neighbor that was in there for a time told me of you when i was asking about wooden draw slides that worked dame nice too , he picked up this craft from prison and said they used your u tube a lot.some of my other neighbors used to say to me how do i like living next to a drug dealer that spent that much of his life in prison.i tell all the same thing God don't care what you were but who you are.hell now they see him more than i do.people are just strange i guess we all are
Charles I don't no any other way to say it You just amaze me.You should of been a teacher
Enjoyed this a lot. Will be backDavid
Charles - love the new site. Sorry for not visiting in a while, but life got busy and I forgot to do the things that bring enjoyment to life. Keep up the good work I assure I will be visiting weekly.
I was searching for your site to send a link to another learner woodworker. Well i last visited with the old site. I certainly hope you dont change the way you have being making videos or projects and become rehersed and all polished and corporate like say Fine Woodworking Mag.
To me the down to earth style you have and the non edited videos are unique and make you you. The good thing i say to people is when one is finished following you in the video one is also finished the project. I have half a dozen half completed projects because i got hung up somewhere when trying to diy from a magazine. But your style and method prevents that.
Keep it that way. Those that want somethig different can seek out someone else. :)
hi charles, paul here, isaw where you commented on my question you said your comment was on your own web site, i have 3 of your sites but must not have the right one but if i do how do i fine your comment?.
hi charles, caught you on wood magazine site as you were building the pie safe. most informative video i have ever watched on wood working, great details, easey to follow along with you. sure is a lot of help to a wannabe woodworker like me hope to purchase some of your video's soon, thank you for your help.
Hi Charles Shaun from Wisconsin here, I first saw your dvds in woodcraft and have bought a few and i have to say they are the most educational dvds i have ever watched. So far my favorite is Cases and Bases , i have always been interested in the Bombe and after watching it i think im going to try building one, maybe just the lower chest, but i might have a few questions for you before i start that.Really love the website too, keep up the good work.
