Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Aimed at beginners, this book provides a plethora of great instructional photos. Organization is sharp, and there is a lot of hand-holding. Not as detailed or authoritative as Clayton DeKorne's Trim Carpentry, still, this is a series to watch. Lack of an index is a shameful oversight.
