This is one of the text-book-style books that has a wealth of information for the individual who has their own ideas of design but needs guidance on the execution of carpentry.

Modern Carpentry provides detailed coverage of all aspects of light construction, including site preparation and layout, foundations, framing and sheathing, roofing, windows and doors, exterior finish, stairs, cabinetry, and finishing. New author Jack R. Jones revised this edition for the modern classroom with new features, hundreds of new images, and expanded coverage of green building practices that highlight industry trends toward greener processes. Special topics, such as chimneys, fireplaces, and decks, are also covered. The text familiarizes students with other aspects of the building trades with chapters on plumbing, electrical, and HVAC.
  • This new edition includes a new Building Envelope and Control Layers chapter, new Workplace Skills features, increased coverage of green processes and technologies, and updated best practices.
  • A career chapter and Construction Careers features throughout the text introduce students to on-the-job success factors, including basic skills, safety, attitudes, and career opportunities.
  • Detailed, step-by-step procedures break down complex operations into easy-to-follow tasks, ensuring student success.
