Product Information:

Clayton DeKorne starts this book, one of Taunton's Build Like A Pro™ series, with information on laying out the trim job, and then quickly moves on to selecting materials for trim and finish jobs, and dealing with some of the peculiarities of working with wood.

  • Window casing installation shows how to change and repair casings on present windows, and do the same for a custom installation using standard windows.

  • Baseboard layout and installation is next up with excellent detail on various ways of cutting corners, including miters and coped cuts.

  • Joining straight sections using scarf joints is solidly explained.

  • Questions about crown molding and compound-miter saws? Clayton thoroughly answers these, as well as covering coped versus mitered joints.

  • Wainscoting is the subject of its own chapter, both in today's popular pre-built styles, and in true raised panel style.

  • Chair rail installation is detailed.

  • From here, the book moves to constructing built-ins, with materials selection first, then going on to building cases, with details on both faceless (European style) and face framed cabinets.

  • This 170 page book is heavily illustrated with color photos and drawings.

  • Softcover.
