Here, Tarbox and Woodson have created a guide that speaks to the way that carpenters and contractors learn: instead "Carpenter's" uses illustrations, photos and charted tables to convey its information - truly a change of pace in this era of over-explained "how-to" books. . .

The authors - both master carpenters - offer a manual that everyone who picks up a hammer (both professional and amateur) should own, for it provides in depth guidance on how to approach, plan and complete a building project. . .

The majority of the errors that carpenters make are a product of miscalculations being made and guess-work gone awry. "Carpenter's" offers an answer to this, for it takes the builder step-by-step through the process of putting up an edifice. From data on how to formulate the foundation to direction on joist calculations to instruction on figuring stair rise, Tarbox and Woodson strip away the confusion and present tables and charts augmented by artful illustrations - follow the directions as they are laid our here and carpenters will circumvent potential problems before they ever occur. . .

The result of this will be cleaner jobs that waste less resources and come in on budget. The result will be less waste in the building trade and more efficient workmanship. Given the boom in the housing market across the country in addition to the record number of folks applying for contractors licenses these days, and this text couldnt be more timely.. .

Recommended as a general reference text in all libraries - both at the college level and in the public sector. Further recommended to high school instructors as a teaching text for wood shop classes at both the beginner and advanced phase.. .
