Homebuilding Basics: Carpentry Reviews
The writer of this book, Larry Haun, is a legend for his carpentry skills and involvement with Habitat for Humanity. He died a few years ago, but he lives on through his books and videos. This book is full of practical tips for learning efficient, safe, rough carpentry.
Reading this as a refresher course. Very well done book. Hard cover made with quality paper and clear color photos. Larry Haun's easy style makes this a pleasure to read.
Everything for novice or pro seems to be in this book, and it is replete with good photography and appropriate explanations.
About half of this books deals with tools.... and the the other half how to stuff... all the information seems to be spot on....
Excellent information for a starting carpenter. Well written.
"Homebuilding Basics: Carpentry" may just be one of the best
this is an excellent primer on stick framing, covering everything from tools to layouts of floors, walls, ceilings and roofs. nothing about shingling, drywalling, plastering, etc. - just framing. that's the strength of this book, in the depth of its treatment of the subject. nicely illustrated, there are at least two or three photos or useful diagrams per page. the book's a big step up from your usual how-to, as the author ties in his own personal building experiences, in ways that illustrate the logic of methods and practices.
This book is the best I've ever seen as a teaching tool on this subject. It assumes no prior knowledge, everything is very clearly written, and the illustrations make it simple to understand. (In fact, if you scanned through the book and only studied the pictures and read their captions, you would learn a great deal without reading the book's text.)
