Once the framing and drywall are done, it's time for the trimwork -- door and window casings and baseboard and crown moldings that give each interior space its distinctive character. In Trim Carpentry Techniques, carpenter Craig Savage offers a detailed primer on designing, selecting and installing the carpenter's finishing touches.
Here you'll find practical advice on hanging doors, setting windows, buying and making molding and installing it, selecting tools -- and finishing the trim with paint or varnish. You'll also find real solutions to everyday problems, such as what to do when your walls are out of plumb or when your floors are out of level. And to help get you started. Trim Carpentry Techniques includes a photo gallery of inspiring examples of the trim carpenter's art.
