Once a home's framing and drywall are done, it's time for the trimwork -- the door and window casings and baseboard and crown moldings that give each interior its distinctive character. In Trim Carpentry Techniques, trim carpenter Craig Savage gives practical advice for hanging doors, setting windows, buying, making and installing molding, selecting tools and finishing trim with paint or varnish.
Savage also gives real solutions to everyday problems, such as what to do when walls are out of plumb or floors are out of level. And to help you get started, there is a photo gallery of inspiring examples of the trim carpenter's art. (Companion video, Installing Trim, available.)
"A handy refresher for the journeyman, explicit help for the do-it-yourselfer, and a must for the framing carpenter..."
