Overview

Whether used to increase the value of a home or to transform a room with a period style, trim is in. This completely updated and revised edition of one of Taunton's most popular Build Like a Pro books will help serious do-it-yourselfers unlock the mysteries of how to get tight miters and work with out-of-square walls, floors, and ceilings. Tackling window and door casings, baseboards, crown molding, and wainscoting, DeKorne does not overwhelm readers with every conceivable way to complete a job; instead, he focuses on the professional methods and mechanics that have served him well throughout his successful career.

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.
