Stumpy Nubs just posted over on Facebook that Charles passed yesterday evening.
That's is indeed sad!
My condolences go out to all who knew, admired and loved him.
He was a great guy. I loved his videos. Real down to earth guy....
Just saw that as well. The man could lay a finish and was great teacher. Rest easy Charles
That's a shame, we lost a good man.
First off, let me say I feel a bit strange saying this. It seems ghoulish and slightly opportunistic to post this, but from the sounds of it his family could use the help.
Anyone that lives close enough please go to the sale of Charles tools and great wood that will really help his family, the sale is on the 28th & 29th of December to help raise money for the family. Hopefully, we will see some of you there. 2821 N. VALLEY PIKE HARRISONBURG, VA 22802

I'm trying to figure who he was. I hate to hear that. I'm about 3 hours away. I'm going to try and get up there.
The information about this sale is certainly getting out, Tony. I saw it a few days ago via our turning club.
Read through this particular forum, a lot of it are his answers to questions. New a ton about finishing.
Saw a few weeks ago that he was ill and was selling off all of his stuff, didn't know he was that bad off. Sad especially before the holiday's.
You can also take a look at his site, http://cn-woodworking.com, to get a feel for what he did and what he was about.
He sure contributed a lot. His forum here will continue on I'm sure. It might be good to have a permanent sticky of the link to his website at the top of the forum page so he can be reminded of his contributions. Condolences to those he left.
