New Edition! Everyday Carpentry for Every Homeowner.

For today's homeowner, basic carpentry skills are an absolute must. Professional handymen are in rare supply these days, and if you can find them at all, they may command exorbitant rates for work that takes just an hour or two to do. Best of all, modern tools are inexpensive and easy to use, making most home carpentry tasks a breeze to do-it-yourself. Black & Decker The Complete Guide to Carpentry for Homeowners is a down-to-earth guide to help readers solve everyday problems using the most basic of tools—hammers, saws, sanders, clamps, and screw guns.

The book opens with the basics of setting up a rudimentary home workshop and learning tool basics, then moves into a lavish how-to section featuring more than 50 everyday home carpentry projects that cover just about every possibility.

  • The perfect introductory book on carpentry skills for homeowners
  • Shows ingenious solutions for creating a full-featured home workshop in limited space
  • A complete reference for tools, materials and hardware
