3.0 out of 5 stars outstanding book for the beginner Nov. 8 1998
By A Customer - Published on
This book is a wealth of information on the how to. It doesn't provide an answer on how to create the universe, but it covers enough of the basics that you could take over the project. From how to stand properly while using a saw, to how to use and maintain hand tools that have been lost and forgotten as antiques or replaced by power tools. This book provides the level of detail and explanation of how and where to use various types of joinery. The book gives a user a greater understanding of why a two hundred year old barn is still standing and in use and there isn't a single nail in it. The book even provides explanations of how and why certain nails are selected for any given job (bigger is not always better). The book covers in painful detail the use of a framing square (ever try to transfer a nine and one half degree angle from a six inch protractor, only to find it wasn't quite right and have ugly gaps in your project).

4.0 out of 5 stars Steel framing square section too tightly written July 19 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Steel framing square section too tightly written...the chapter is not for those that do not have any past experience with the steel framing square. This chapter leaves me wishing to ask additional questions...perhaps there is a Video
