From the Publishers: Carpentry has been thoroughly updated and
expanded in this new edition to reflect both the latest trends and accepted
practices of the carpentry trade. This full-color text provides a comprehensive
overview of tools, equipment, materials, and trade practices.

Great efforts have been made to update the content of the textbook while
retaining the approach, appeal, and aesthetics of our popular earlier edition.
We asked our current users what they liked about the earlier edition and what
they would change. New and expanded content areas reflect theses suggestions and
include the following:

  • Safety practices and pertinent OSHA regulations

  • Scaffolds and aerial lifts
  • Updated tools and equipment including total stations
  • Engineered lumber and panels
  • Trade associations and organizations
  • Metal framing
  • Pneumatic and powder-actuated tools

The CD-ROM included with Carpentry contains information to supplement
the textbook including the following:

  • Quick Quizzes™ provide an interactive review of topics covered.
  • An Illustrated Glossary provides a helpful reference to key terms
    included in the text.
  • Master Math™ Problems provide formulas for interactive
    calculation and application of math-related concepts.
  • Media Clips provide a convenient link to selected video and
    animation clips that show fundamental procedures.
  • The Reference Material button accesses links to web sites that
    contain useful related manufacturer and reference information.
