Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In this revision of the 2002 edition, carpenter DeKorne, who has written numerous books on building and trim work, brings experience and insight to his instruction. While many of the projects and illustrations remain the same, the text has been tightened up, and tips sections have been improved. New to this edition are a glossary and a nice design gallery at the end of each project section, showing a range of possibilities.
