Packed with powerful, full-color diagrams and an easy-to-understand writing style, the DEWALT Carpentry and Framing Complete Handbook will give you the ability to teach your students the basics of carpentry and framing -- using the methods that will most effectively reach them.

Students are often drawn to images and artwork, preferring to see how tasks should be completed, instead of reading about it. This book does just that by spelling out, through pictures, the step-by-step procedures associated with key carpentry concepts. The accompanying text is clear, straightforward, and accessible, clarify and elaborating on the visuals.

Coverage begins with a discussion of house types and foundations, gradually progressing to more complex areas, such as wall and floor framing. The book concludes with a chapter on special topics, which includes an exploration of the construction of stairs, railings, porches, and decks.

Logically organized for easy reference, this is a thorough yet concise introduction to the world of carpentry and framing!
