The constant companion of every skilled carpenter is the steel square. The Second Edition of Steel Square, which has been enlarged and improved by the addition of an "Illustrative Problem", proves this fact.

All carpenters have a general knowledge of the steel square. Many, however, desire to be shown exactly and in detail how this tool may be applied to find the answer to questions which arise in the building of a house.

With this in mind, the author has followed the construction of a typical house from start to finish. The many problems confronting the carpenter are explained. Then, step by step, the solution of these problems with the use of the steel square is given.
