A PRACTICAL manual, being a new and complete guide, giving a large number of ready methods for laying out and performing works in carpentry, joinery, and general woodwork. It is copiously illustrated with diagrams and figures showing the solution of many intricate problems in geometry, roofing, carpentry, joinery and stair work. The illustrations and descriptive matter are clear, simple, definite 'and easily understood.

The work is divided into four parts, namely: Carpenters' Geometry, Timber Framing and Carpentry, Joinery and Joiners' Work, and lastly Rules and Tables for Measuring and Estimating Woodwork Generally.

Like all of Mr. Hodgson's works, it is written in a simple, every-day style, and does not bewilder the workingman with long mathematical formulas. It is the most complete, thorough, practical and reliable.
