First published in 1916, this volume contains a classic guide to carpentry, including chapters on everything from the fundamental principles to useful formulas and how to apply them to practical work. Carpentry refers to the skilled trade in which the primary work performed is the cutting, shaping and installation of wood. Profusely illustrated and easy-to-digest, this volume is perfect for apprentices and those looking for an introduction to the subject, and it would make for a handy reference book for more experienced carpenters. Contents include: “Foundations”, “Main Frame”, “Roof Frame: Square Cornered Building”, “Roof Frame: Any Polygon”, “Exterior Covering and Finish”, “Interior Finish”, “Estimating”, “Natural Trigonometric Functions”, “Solution of Right Triangles”, Table of Natural Functions”, “Useful Tables”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on wood working.
