Product Description

Review

"... indispensable to students ... the book is laid out very neatly ... an excellent glossary of terms."
Institute of Carpenters

Product Description

Beginning with the fundamentals of carpentry work within a domestic construction setting, this book goes on to cover a wide range of first-fixing operations prior to plastering and second-fixing operations after plastering. Each chapter covers the subject in great detail with step-by-step illustrations and text.

Now in full colour, this edition has been updated throughout to take recent changes to the Building Regulations into account. The book is fully up to date with current industry best practice and technological developments, and a new chapter has been incorporated to address Sharpening Traditional Saws.

The breadth of coverage and easily accessible ‘how-to’ approach makes this text an ideal resource for the 2000 apprentices per year taking NVQs and 1500 following Construction Awards within the Wood Occupations (City & Guilds / Construction skills). The technical detail and practical focus ensures that this book will be a vital purchase for these students, and an essential reference for any experienced carpenter or joiner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative and interesting. Very usefull. 19 Sept. 1999
Format:Paperback
As an improver in the field of carpentry and self employed joiner I found the book to be an ideal reference source to correct carpentry methods involved in construction methods. There is a good chapter on basic tools and sharpening as well. This could definetely become a carpenters bible! Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars It helped me... 20 Dec. 2002
Format:Paperback
Firstly - I like this book. Secondly - How-to books, are about getting you from where you are, to where you want to be. For me, this book does exactly that, but I guess it depends where you are! The index at the back is logical, and that is a real plus. I needed to do these jobs for real, and this book showed me how. The one thing I am still not sure of, is exactly what first and second fix are. From the perspective of a keen DIY'er.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet again another fine book from Les Goring 31 May 2007
Format:Paperback
After reading the first edition of Les Goring Manual of First and Second Fixing Carpentry i thought i had a good understanding of carpentry, how wrong i was. After reading the second edition i came away with an enormous amount of knowledge on modern technologies. The book has fantastic illustrations and is very well laid out, I urge anyone from a trade, educational or DIY background to buy this book.

This is a very good reference book that you will visit time and time again.
