David Charlseworth Passed Away


David Charlesworth passed away on Sunday 22 May 2022. My condolences goes out to his family. David was an excellent teacher. He graduated from his apprenticeship in the 70’s and immediately opened a woodworking school and had been teaching ever since. He made several DVD’s for LN and many more later ones on his website: https://www.davidcharlesworth.co.uk/

He is well known for his “ruler trick.” I am shocked by his death, I had no idea he was sick. I have picked up some pointers from him many years ago which I still practice to this day. He will be missed.

Rest In Peace David

  1. I was not aware of it. I never got to know him personally, but I guess that anyone that is involved in some way or another with hand tools would know his name, the David Charlesworth Ruler Trick and most likely has seen a video or two of him offered and/or produced by Lie-Nielsen Toolworks. I consider him as one of the exceptional woodworkers of our time and his teachings will be around for generations. He is leaving a great legacy! My condolences to his family. R.I.P. P.S. Thank you for letting us know.
