This book contains a detailed guide on carpentry from the 'Carpenter and Builder' series of 'Technical Manuals'. The information given is plain and practical, and this text constitutes a complete course of practical carpentry, commencing with a brief sketch of those rudimentary principles which are indispensable to secure stability and elegance of structure. It proceeds from these 'first principles' to simple examples of framing, and from there, moves on to more elaborate specimens. Complete with easy-to-follow instructions, handy tips, and detailed illustrations, this text is ideal for anyone with an interest in carpentry and makes for a great addition to collections of DIY literature. The chapters contained within include: Preface, Principles, Joints, Roof Construction, Timbers, Flooring, and Partitions.
