From the Publisher;


With the emergence of new tools and materials over the last few years, the
role of a finish carpenter has evolved. Of course, the basic skills are still
required. But more sophisticated tools demand new skills and techniques. Finish
Carpentry
covers it all -- from the basic fundamentals to the most recent
innovations that are re-shaping the craft. Firmly rooted in the current
realities of the building industry, this book shows you how to do fine custom
work -- with a keen eye toward speed, precision and efficiency.


In each comprehensive chapter, you'll find valuable tips, techniques and
advice that include everything from getting started and choosing tools, to
running baseboard, trimming out windows and doors, to creating wainscoting and
crown molding. And by providing some practical tips on fitting new materials
into old houses, the authors help you bridge the gap between yesterday and
today.


With this valuable reference volume by your side, you can use every new tool
at your disposal to create the artful touches any 19th century craftsman would
be proud of.
