4.0 out of 5 stars Trim Carpentry Techniques Jan. 27 2003
Nice illustrations, step by step procedures are easy to follow if you do not like to read. Detailed materials and tooling information is somewhat provided. Good for a jobsite quick refrence guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book to read, book to treasure Jan. 16 2006
By john
Most books describe working under ideal conditions. Savage tells you how to cope with problem situations left by others. This book saved us numerous hours and frustrations dealing with skewed rough-openings, proud drywall, and many other problems. We reread it before every renovation job. (My only complaint is that the author has no new edition.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Too complex for a novice... July 6 2000
By Scott Moore - Published on Amazon.com
I am currently in the middle of a massive remodeling project in my house. I bought this book to learn some simple techniques for installing the molding that was so easy to rip out, but is a pain to put back in. I read the book from cover to cover and I found that the book lacked on illustrations/pictures. Most of the explanations are only given in paragraph form, and was hard to follow for me. This is the only do it yourself book that I regret buying from Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb guide on the art of trim carpentry Jan. 4 2000
By Ross Ridenoure - Published on Amazon.com
An outstanding book for anyone interested in trim carpentry from the novice to the more experienced carpenter! Very thorough, yet easy to understand dicussions of each aspect of trim carpentry with excellent illustrations to accompany the text. As an experienced do-it-your-selfer with quite a bit of woodworking experience, this book was a delight to read and use. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Doing it right July 9 2001
By Brian C. Wadell - Published on Amazon.com
Great book on trim carpentry techniques for pros or someone who wants to do a professional quality job. Written from the practical viewpoint of an experienced pro with high standards. A bit of overkill if you are in a hurry but I would recommend it before trimming several rooms yourself or even if you want to check your contractor's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book For Base, Crown and Other Moldings April 8 2001
By TomBrooklyn - Published on Amazon.com
Very good book for baseboard, crown, door and window moldings. It has tons of pictures and illustrations. On the top of the cover of the book it says: "For Pros/ By Pros". I would agree with this assesment; but it is easy enough for a handyman type with little molding experience like me to follow also. After looking through this book, I was tearing out old molding with abondon and the confidence that I could do a good job of getting nice new stuff back in.

2.0 out of 5 stars Originally published in 1989. Outdated then? March 30 2005
By Green_D - Published on Amazon.com
I was looking for a well layed out reference guide that I could learn a few tricks of the trade. This book seemed to spend way to much time setting the reader up for the first day on the job (back in the 70's and 80's mind you), then long-winded yet sparse information on actual methods of trim carpentry.

If you are willing to read a book from cover to cover on this subject here's your ticket. But if your looking for concise writting, logical up-to-date illustrations, a book that you can easily reference in a pinch, you might want to steer clear.
