    Trim Carpentry Book?

    First let me say "Hello" to everyone. I was wondering where everyone went.

    Here's my question. I am looking for a good book on trim carpentry. Can you all list your favorites for me?

    Thanks, and it looks like you have a really good board here.

    Hey Martin.

    Welcome to our Family forum. Great to have you here

    Nothing specific on a book title, but have you searched's book selections yet?

    There are several on trim, staircases, etc.

    Offhand I can't recommend just a trim book, as I do not have any books on it. My experience in trim, is self taught, by watching, noticing how others have done things, working with a few others, picking out the bad/good ways that I've seen done.

    How about the best?

    This should be on everybody's shelf.

    Gary Katz, Finish Carpentry.

    He spells it out better then anyone.

    Then after you order the book, check out and

    book mark his website.

    Font of knowledge there.

    Please, take this from someone who has been doing this stuff way

    before the books were written.

    Seems the link went South....

    Hopefully this works!

    Comes from clicking on publications on Gary's website.
