"Joinery, as distinct from carpentry, is the craft of designing, constructing and fixing the various wood fittings met within and around buildings.
Designed for use by both the amateur and the professional craftsman, this book sets out clearly and practically the principles of joinery and their applications. It begins by covering the basics of joinery - tools, timber, principal joints - and goes on to explain in detail and step by step, the construction of fittings such as doors, windows and stairs.
Illustrations are provided throughout to demonstrated and clarify the points made, and the text incorporates both Imperial and metric units."
