Cassell’s Carpentry and Joinery’ is a practical work on practical handicrafts, and it was first published in the confident belief that it was by far the most exhaustive book on these subjects hitherto produced. This text is a comprehensive guide on carpentry, compromising notes on materials, processes, principles and practice, and including about 1,800 engravings. A great book for carpenters of all levels, this book is not to be missed by discerning woodworkers and constitutes a great addition to collections of woodworking literature. The chapters of this book include: ‘Hand Tools and appliances’, ‘Timber’, ‘Joints’, ‘Floors’, ‘Timber Partitions’, ‘Timber Roofs’, ‘Framework of Dormer Windows’, ‘Half-Timber Constructions’, ‘Arch Canterings’, ‘Joiners’ Rods’, ‘Door and Door Frames’, ‘Window Sashes and Casements’, ‘Mouldings: Working and Setting-Out’, et cetera. We are proud to republish this text here complete with a new introduction on woodworking.
