Product Description

About the book:

In this newly revised second edition of his popular reference on trim carpentry, Clayton DeKorne has added much new material to deliver an even more comprehensive manual on every facet of interior woodwork - all from the perspective of a professional carpenter.

From door and window casings, baseboards and ceiling moldings to wainscoting, cabinets and built-in furniture, the author provides step-by-step instructions on the mechanics of how trim is put together - to achieve a seamless, artful look and feel.

As you move from chapter to chapter, DeKorne's clear dedication to the craft is apparent on every page. Readers of the first edition have shared their questions and the answers are reflected in this edition. Insights from a wide range of other trim carpenters have been woven into the text. And the author's deep knowledge and expert advice will inform you from start to finish.

About the author:

Clayton DeKorne became a full carpenter at age 17, and over the next two decades he advanced from lead carpenter to trim contractor. He was also senior editor at the Journal of Light Construction and founding editor of Tools of the Trade and Coastal Contractor.
