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.
