    Want to build a Hancock shaker clock see Charles Neil video instruction online

    I have no idea how i came across this video but Charles Neil has a site and does project videos with the newbie in mind.

    Most of you will find it maybe beneath your experience but i like his style for guys like myself. Not the perfection of 2 fancy photographers an art director and production supervisor, just a camera and pretty good instruction in my mind especially for beginners. Its like you visiting his shop for the afternoon and he is your uncle telling you how to go about it but not treating you like you a total idiot.

    Very practicle advise.
    Take a look at here.

    BTW there are other projects he has as well.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    I get a kick out of Charles. He has that "regular guy" way of presenting himself while he turns out some really wonderful work. He is pretty straight forward about doing what it takes to get the result he is after. He respects the lessons learned from the past but adds his own recent experience and methods as well.
