If there’s one area most folks have trouble with it’s finishing. Charles Neil is the number one finishing expert in my opinion and now he is offering a on line class for finishing ,his on line woodworking classes have been a great success, I know I’ve been getting his on line Mastering wood working from day one. Now you can get the same expert learning experience re finishing and at a bargain price too. Where else can you get a finishing expert to show you every detail of finishing and answering your questions.

Here’s a copy of the notice I received about the class

Charles Neil Finishing Class – On Line!

We’re taking our Finishing Class On-Line! That’s right, no matter where you live, you’ll be able to access the finishing class just like Charles teaches at his shop.

As I finished writing the book, Finishing, Simply Put, I realized that there is so much information that is between the lines. The information is there, but seeing it would help you even more. The book and the class, hand in hand, one complimenting the other. Each topic will be a separate, indexed video so you will be able to watch, learn and reference.

The class is subscriber access. We will go live with the class on June 1, 2013. Everything we do at my in-house class will be available by topic; great for those of you who haven’t had or don’t have the opportunity to attend and great for those of you who have attended one of the classes as a refresher. The online class allows me to cover a lot more topics than we can address in the 3-day class.

The monthly subscription price is $12.00 which gives you access to view all topics and refresh when necessary. The videos WILL NOT be downloadable or on DVD as we have had issues with these items being pirated in the past. So for the $12.00/month you will have access to the entire class at any time and as new products or techniques emerge, they will be added. There will also be videos of Charles finishing major pieces, he’ll take you in the finishing room with him and walk you through the steps.

If you subscribe this week, you will get the class for only $10.00/month or for those of you who do not want a monthly, recurring billing, you may purchase an annual subscription.

Subscribe Now – $10.00/month Subscription – Special (save $2/month)

Subscribe Now – 6 month Payment at Special Savings – $60 (Save $12.00)
for those who do not want a monthly recurring billing

Subscribe with Annual Payment at Special Savings – $120 (Save $24)
for those who do not want a monthly recurring billing

after May 3, 2013, the price will be $12.00/month, $72.00/6 mos. and
$144.00/year respectively.

Now, I mentioned my book, Finishing, Simply Put which will begin shipping the first week of June. Many of you have pre-ordered, but we are prepared to take preorders for those who missed the first one.

Order Finishing, Simply Put at Special Price of $45.95 plus shipping
Regular Price – $54.95 plus shipping after May 3, 2013

Have a great week! Catcha Later!

Thanks great information and I’m quite certain these course materials will be well worth the viewing and costs of the opportunity to acquire the expert knowledge. He’s a super patiient teacher/tutorer. He helped me thouugh four tries to salvage a severely, water glass ringed antique table without sanding the origanial finish off. The fourth try was truely successful and the magic potion. If he’s reading this, once again Charles “MANY THANKS!”

Thanks for the class info Jim…Another reason to sign up for their site membership! Charles is a very involved and patient teacher, and as Russell said, he LOVES to teach those that are willing to learn. I look forward to seeing these video’s live…I am sure there is enough info for beginners, all the way up to those that have finishing experience as well…can’t wait, and I think it’s a special opportunity!

I know this is going to be great Charles. All of your videos on finishing have many many details on finishing I had no clue about. If folks think about it you can spend $25-$75 buying finish just for one project and still not know why their finish is not tuning out,this way they can buy the right material the first time and know what to do with it once their ready to finish a project. I know when I first started finishing I spent lots of money on different types of finishing material and was always disappointed with the results. If I only would have had your advice back then I would have had much better looking projects and would have had someone to tell me what went wrong and how to fix it if I didn’t do it right. Can’t wait I know I’ll be there with bells on June 1st.
