Just completed a three day finishing class presented by Charles Neil of New Market, Virginia….I’m totally convinced that this man knows more about finishing than anyone I know or anyone of whom I’ve read. In this short period of time, I was presented with information on wood preparation, sanding, coloring, filling, glazing and topcoat of every type. We learned the advantages as well as the disadvantages of using Oil, Solvent and Waterborne stains, dyes and finishes. We learned about blotch prone woods and products which overcome these problems. The material was presented in a “down to earth” format that even a novice woodworking like myself could understand and more importantly comprehend. Not only did we receive lectures but we had ample opportunity to practice hands-on exercises. We didn’t have success in all of our exercises but Charles Neil was very quick to point out our mistake and instructed us on corrective actions. Charles was very quick to answer our questions and was very helpful in helping us achieve wonderful results. Building a project our of wood is never successful if you don’t consider finishing from the start….
