Charles – another good series. Still have a couple to watch. I very much enjoy your no nonsense approach. I had to chuckle on the first installment when your bit kept coming out of the drill. Mine does that to – I can never quite get them in tight enough.

I also very much enjoyed your video on introducing kids to woodworking. It looks like you all had a great day and you’ve probably have hooked and reeled another fish or two into the ww’ing pond. Way to go!

Sherri Here, really struggling trying to get the information out in good quality. I get a lot of emails telling me of the poor quality compared to a couple of other woodworking videos out there. Anyway, I keep telling myself the video quality will come, just make sure the woodworking quality of information is top notch. I would love to get feedback from you guys. It is hard to put it out there when your end user is basically anonymous and you try to be all things, scared to leave the slightest detail out, but on the other side, this might totally bore you, would be great to hear from you. We just want to get Charles’ experience shared in the best way we can. Thanks for your support and your help.

Sherry – my quick two cents is that anyone who takes the free information and then complains that the video quality is not good enough should send you some money for better equipment. You are doing the best you can, within your budget and ability. As you do more videos you’ll get better. We cannot expect you and Charles to be the best woodworkers and the best videographers at the same time. I will take Charles not so perfect videos put them and their content up against some of the more crisp videos and their lack of content anyday. He’s sharing information he does not have to share and I appreciate that.

Just keep doing videos and the quality will improve with practice and learn as you go stuff. Charles did not make his first box perfect either – it was a process. I enjoy the videos a lot and having watched a lot of internet stuff on woodworking, his content is better than most and honestly, I like his style.

Just my $.02.

when I get written feedback from workshops there are always one or two that will complain about everything and anything. At first I was upset by the comments (as some of them don’t even make sense) and then i’d just ignore them because there are just people who will complain. Fact. And then I realized that underneath their words were tips that I could use to make my workshops even better – sometimes I can’t find the tips (hahaha) because they are so buried beneath words that betray their own personal issues, but usually I can get something to add/remove/change in my workshops to take my skills to a new level.

And in the meantime – remember WHY you are doing this and enjoy the process, regardless of the negative feedback.
