First published in 1863, this book contains a classic guide to carpentry and joinery. Carpentry refers to the skilled trade in which the primary work performed is the cutting, shaping and installation of wood; and joinery is the collective term for the wooden components of a building. This fantastic volume will appeal to those with an interest in wood work, and constitutes a must-have addition to serious DIY collections. Contents include: “To Find the Lengths and Bevels of Hip and Common Rafters”, “To Find the Lengths of the Jacks”, “To Find the Backing of the Hip”, “Where to Take the Length of Rafters”, “Difference between Hip and Valley Roof”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this classic volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on wood finishing.
