Overview

The difference between an ordinary home and an unforgettable one is in the details. Trim carpentry can add thousands of dollars in value to any house, and this fantastic guide explains how to plan the job, choose the appropriate wood and style, and use hand and power tools. Hundreds of color photographs break down each process to its core components: start by adding crown molding and a rich-looking cornice, install a chair rail or raised-paneled wainscoting, or replace a boring interior doorway with a custom-crafted, block-and-plinth casing. Using custom or prefabricated parts, woodworkers can dress up a living room with an elegant coffered ceiling, add picture rails, or install baseboard moldings. Expert tips help every job come out great!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Trim can be a wonderful accent to your home, lending elegance and class. Here, Marshall (The Complete New Router Book for Woodworkers) includes some sound woodworking and router instruction for incorporating trim around the home. Though the gallery of projects is a little dull, and the introduction of molding styles and materials appears dated, the step-by-step instructions for installation are useful, and, from windows and walls to doors and baseboards, Marshall covers the gamut. For a more extensive sample of trim profiles, see Neal Barrett's The Ultimate Guide to Trim Carpentry. Recommended for larger collections.
