Back by popular demand, these classic woodworking titles from Fine Woodworking magazine are filled with first-rate information that is as timeless now as it was when first published.
Here are hundreds of practical, hard-won methods of working that cover every aspect of home construction and remodeling. If you're the handy person around your home, you'll relish this unique collection.
No building job, whether new construction, renovation, or remodeling, is exactly like any other. Nor does building ever go precisely according to plan. That's why builders have to improvise solutions by relying on their ingenuity and experience. And with the job well done, few can resist the urge to share the insight that made it all work out. The "Tips & Techniques" column in Fine Homebuilding magazine is the pre-eminent forum where builders exchange job-site lore.
The editors of Fine Homebuilding magazine have organized all this valuable advice into this handy volume. You'll find extensive sections on tools, layout and measuring, foundations and masonry, rough carpentry, roofs, floors, drywall, trim carpentry, doors and windows, built-ins, and even painting.
Some of these pointers are basic advice to the novice and some are for the more experienced craftsperson. But they've all been tested and proven on the job. This is advice you can really use.
