This new edition for Carpentry from Delmar's Residential Construction Academy Series, introduces users to skills and information required to work professionally on any job site. Based on nationally-recognized standards set by the construction industry, this book is organized into four sections; "Tools and Materials", "Rough Carpentry", "Exterior Finish", and "Interior Finish". New topics have been added in this edition to the Power Tool, Building Foundation, Wall Framing and Finish Carpentry chapters. Extensively illustrated and succinctly written, nearly every chapter contains special "Procedure" sections that combine precise, step-by-step instructions with helpful drawings, making it easy to master tasks.
