    Could not recommend this book more

    I am a construction volunteer for Habit for Humanity. I use this book to get ahead of all the actual professionals on the job site, so I can keep up with the language they use. Great book.

    The Carpentry book that I recommend owning first

    'Carpentry' by Larry Haun, is the Number 1 book that I recommend owning first when beginning carpenters, homeowners, and do-it-yourselfers ask me about learning different aspects of this trade. I also tell these folks that this book, in particular, is well written, easy to understand, and filled with high-quality color photographs and drawings, that help make clear what this Master Carpenter is teaching on the subject of basic carpentry. In addition to the above, I'm asked this question many times as my crew and I frame or remodel homes in our state of Minnesota: 'What other books do you recommend buying to help us learn more about homebuilding and fixing-up our home?' I tell these folks that they can be assured of finding additional high-quality, informative books from the publishers at Taunton Press, and Fine Homebuilding. I tell the carpenters that ask me the same question to check out Larry Haun's book titled, 'The Very Efficient Carpenter,' also published by Taunton Press, as their next step in becoming more efficient as working carpenters.
