About the book

Edition: 2018
Pages: 303
Authors: Les Goring
Publisher: Routledge
Language: English

This book was written because there is a need for trade books with a strong practical bias, using a DIY step-by-step approach – and not because there was any desire to add yet another book to the long list of carpentry books already on the market. Although many of these do their authors credit, the bias is mainly from a technical viewpoint with wide general coverage and I believe there is a potential market for books (manuals) that deal with the sequence and techniques of performing the various, unmixed specialisms of the trade. Such is the aim of this book, to present a practical guide through the first two of these subjects, namely first-fixing and second-fixing carpentry.

These definitions mean that any work required to be done before plastering takes place – such as roofing and floor joisting – is referred to as first-fixing carpentry;
second-fixing carpentry, therefore, refers to any work that takes place after plastering – such as fixing skirting boards, architraves and door-hanging.

Most carpenters cover both areas of this work, although some specialize in either one or the other. To clarify the mix up between carpentry and joinery, items of joinery – such as staircases and wooden windows– are manufactured in workshops and factories and should be regarded as a separate specialism.

The book, hopefully, will be of interest to many people, but it was written primarily for craft apprentices (a rare breed in this present-day economy), trainees and building students, established trades-people seeking to reinforce certain weak or sketchy areas in their knowledge and, as works of reference, the book may also be of value to vocational teachers, lecturers and instructors. Finally, the sequential, detailed treatment of the work should appeal to the keen DIY enthusiast.
