Product Description

Review

If you are already a tradesperson, this book might STILL be good for review. But, if like me, you are a homeowner interested in repairs and maintenance, and perhaps some light carpentry to plane a door, build some storage or the like, this is THE book. Easy to follow, step-by-step comprehensive instructions with clear photos for each important step, lists of tools and fixin's to do the job, it's all there. Lots of projects, easy to use- a reference I won't do without. --JDiver--Basic carpentry but also a lot of advanced projects. Useful, but some stuff will never be used by me because the projects are too big like removing a load bearing wall and building a custom laminate countertop. But great if you want to do those things. --Gloria K Derby-- --Gloria K Derby

bought this book for a garage project of mine and the decent reviews it had. I must say the reviews are well deserved. This book offers plenty of photos and well explained "how-to" guide lines. Detailed explanation with photos of all the tools you'll need for your project. I can now do my projects with confidence considering I am a novice at carpentry. Excellent choice for the novist. --doityurselfer

I got this book from my wife for Christmas, and I was immediately able to use it! I'm a computer geek, and usually when I get a hammer in my hand, it ends up either hitting my fingers or making a bigger hole in the wall. This book teaches ALL the basics, from how to saw wood to how to frame and install a new door in a new wall! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it's still a reference book - it's not something that I'd pore over in the middle of the night and couldn't put down. It's still a great book! --nd --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

An American book on basic home improvements (knocking out walls etc.) much of the content
irrelevant to British homes.
Projects more of the building & constuction nature rather than basic carpentry that I expected
