Summary
At the core of every DIYer is the ability to work with wood. In the home, the garage, or the backyard, carpentry skills will prove useful time and time again - it is the ultimate foundational craft of the do-it-yourselfer. With HomeSkills: Carpentry, you can embark on the fun process of building your DIY skillset by learning the basics of working with wood and wood products. You'll see how to assemble your starter toolbox and small workshop, and we'll give you a crash course in how to use tools correctly. Finally, we'll share step-by-step instructions for accomplishing some of the most common home carpentry projects: building your own workbench or setup table, hanging a door, building an interior stud wall, working with plywood and sheet goods, and a score of other practical tasks. Accompanied by 350 detailed photographs, this one-stop how-to book will have you well on your way to becoming a home carpenter.--COVER
