The Complete Guide to Home Carpentry combines the most popular carpentry projects with up-to-date information on tools, techniques, and materials required for home projects. Easy-to-use photo-driven pages show readers the most common saw cuts, nailing techniques, router designs, and skills for using dozens of other tools. Projects range from framing a partition wall, building shelves, and installing windows and doors, to hanging cabinets, cutting countertops, and installing trim. Readers even learn how to remove walls for remodeling projects.

This book contains everything readers need for their projects - both new construction and repairs - in user-friendly detail. Color photos accompany each technique and project. The result is an indispensable resource for any homeowner planning a carpentry project, large or small.

Highlights:

  • Contains hundreds of the indoor and outdoor carpentry projects and techniques most useful to homeowners.
  • Covers basic framing, window and door installation, and trim detail, plus installing cabinets, countertops, and shelves.
  • Shows how to use and maintain carpentry tools, such as hand and power saws, routers, drills, sanders, and more.Competitive titles have fewer than half as many projects and techniques, and little, if any, photography.

Review:

If you are already a tradesperson, this book might STILL be good for review. But, if like me, you are a homeowner interested in repairs and maintenance, and perhaps some light carpentry to plane a door, build some storage or the like, this is THE book. Easy to follow, step-by-step comprehensive instructions with clear photos for each important step, lists of tools and fixin's to do the job, it's all there. Lots of projects, easy to use- a reference I won't do without. --JDiver--Basic carpentry but also a lot of advanced projects. Useful, but some stuff will never be used by me because the projects are too big like removing a load bearing wall and building a custom laminate countertop. But great if you want to do those things. --Gloria K Derby-- --Gloria K Derby

bought this book for a garage project of mine and the decent reviews it had. I must say the reviews are well deserved. This book offers plenty of photos and well explained "how-to" guide lines. Detailed explanation with photos of all the tools you'll need for your project. I can now do my projects with confidence considering I am a novice at carpentry. Excellent choice for the novist. --doityurselfer

I got this book from my wife for Christmas, and I was immediately able to use it! I'm a computer geek, and usually when I get a hammer in my hand, it ends up either hitting my fingers or making a bigger hole in the wall. This book teaches ALL the basics, from how to saw wood to how to frame and install a new door in a new wall! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it's still a reference book - it's not something that I'd pore over in the middle of the night and couldn't put down. It's still a great book! --nd
