In this newly revised second edition of his popular reference on trim carpentry, Clayton DeKorne has added much new material to deliver an even more comprehensive manual on every facet of interior woodwork -- all from the perspective of a professional carpenter.

From door and window casings, baseboards and ceiling moldings to wainscoting, cabinets and built-in furniture, the author provides step-by-step instructions on the mechanics of how trim is put together -- to achieve a seamless, artful look and feel.

Whether used to increase the value of a home or to transform a room with a period style, trim is in. This completely updated and revised edition of one of Taunton's most popular Build Like a Pro books will help serious do-it-yourselfers unlock the mysteries of how to get tight miters and work with out-of-square walls, floors, and ceilings. Tackling window and door casings, baseboards, crown molding, and wainscoting, DeKorne does not overwhelm readers with every conceivable way to complete a job; instead, he focuses on the professional methods and mechanics that have served him well throughout his successful career.

This book is not meant for amateurs in wood working. It was a little over my head! But, it has good visuals.
