Finish Carpentry (For Pros By Pros)by Clayton Dekorne
Synopses & Reviews
Whether it's new construction or remodeling, finish carpentry is what gives a home warmth, personality, and style — and this new, thoroughly illustrated reference provides the step by step information a professional or ambitious do-it-yourselfer needs to get the job done right the first time. Starting with how to damage-proof a house before the carpentry begins, the authors take the reader through every aspect of the craft. From running baseboards and installing interior doors to trimming windows and installing crown and wainscot, the authors tackle the hard parts such as working with out-of-plumb, out-of-square, and out-of-level conditions. The authors also include an invaluable appendix on wood basics that details grain, shrinkage, joint design, finishes, and composite materials.
This professional-level source for finish carpentry techniques is a completely new book in a subject area that has proven immensely saleable. For professional carpenters and serious and ambitious do-it-yourselfers, an authoritative and comprehensive professional-level finish carpentry resource for new or remodel residential construction, written by a professional finish carpenter. Information is highly visual and simple to use with information tailored to the needs of professional builders and remodelers.
Comprised of articles taken from "Fine Homebuilding" magazine, this new edition of "Finish Carpentry" has been updated and redesigned throughout to provide builders with the very best current information.
