Doing it right, July 9, 2001
Reviewer: Brian C. Wadell from Reading, MA USA
Great book on trim carpentry techniques for pros or someone who wants to do a professional quality job. Written from the practical viewpoint of an experienced pro with high standards. A bit of overkill if you are in a hurry but I would recommend it before trimming several rooms yourself or even if you want to check your contractor's work.

Excellent Book For Base, Crown and Other Moldings, April 8, 2001
Reviewer: tombrooklyn from Brooklyn, New York, United States
Very good book for baseboard, crown, door and window moldings. It has tons of pictures and illustrations. On the top of the cover of the book it says: "For Pros/ By Pros". I would agree with this assesment; but it is easy enough for a handyman type with little molding experience like me to follow also. After looking through this book, I was tearing out old molding with abondon and the confidence that I could do a good job of getting nice new stuff back in.

Too complex for a novice..., July 6, 2000
Reviewer: Scott Moore from Rochester, MN USA
I am currently in the middle of a massive remodeling project in my house. I bought this book to learn some simple techniques for installing the molding that was so easy to rip out, but is a pain to put back in. I read the book from cover to cover and I found that the book lacked on illustrations/pictures. Most of the explanations are only given in paragraph form, and was hard to follow for me. This is the only do it yourself book that I regret buying from Amazon!

Superb guide on the art of trim carpentry, January 4, 2000
Reviewer: Ross Ridenoure from Omaha, Nebraska
An outstanding book for anyone interested in trim carpentry from the novice to the more experienced carpenter! Very thorough, yet easy to understand dicussions of each aspect of trim carpentry with excellent illustrations to accompany the text. As an experienced do-it-your-selfer with quite a bit of woodworking experience, this book was a delight to read and use. Highly recommended!
