Summary, etc.:
"With abundant, full-color visuals and an engaging writing style, the DEWALT® CARPENTRY AND FRAMING COMPLETE HANDBOOK, Second Edition, is an ideal resource to help students master the basics of carpentry and framing. Recognizing that students often learn more effectively by seeing how tasks should be completed, rather than merely reading about abstract concepts, the text uses photos, diagrams, and step-by-step procedures to ground chapter material in highly practical, real-world applications. The text is logically organized to provide a comprehensive, yet concise, introduction to the trade, from foundations and floors to walls, rafters, and roofs--as well as special topics such as stairs, railings, porches, and decks. In addition, students can take advantage of the free DEWALT Mobile Pro™ app, a construction calculator with integrated reference materials (" -- Publisher website.
