My dear friend Charles Neil passed away yesterday after 8 months of battling septic. Charles was a master furniture maker, finishing expert and great teacher on both subjects both online through numerous videos and in-person classes. In spite of his great talent and expertise, he would always stop and answer email and phone call questions no matter what he was doing. I feel honored to have known him as a very special friend and mentor and to have been able to know him, he was a one of a kind giving human being, him and his masterful work will be missed by many.
Thank you Charles for all of your kindness, friendship and sharing of information and know-how (RIP)
