Trim Carpentry and Built-ins, Paperback / softback Book


The interior trim of a house is both a way to dress up the rooms and to suggest period styles.

This is a complete do-it-yourself guide to trim carpentry and built-in furniture.

Professional carpenter Clayton DeKorne explains how to achieve great results even in challenging situations through step-by-step instruction and advice gleaned from years of practical experience. * Build Like A Pro series provides expert advice from start to finish.

Trim is a project often undertaken by do-it-yourselfers but it is challenging because it requires precision.

Here, insider tips explain how to design and install a variety of trim projects and built-ins. * This book demystifies a carpentry skill that requires precision: the art of getting tight joints, working with out-of-square walls, floors and ceilings, and still get professional results. * Covers all the usual trim projects step-by-step: window and door casings, baseboards, crownmoulding, wainscots, built-in bookcases and cabinets.
