Get Finish Carpentry by Gary Katz. It is a GREAT book, it not only give you the basics to turn out decent work, but also shows you where you can make short-cuts and stop overbuilding where it is just as waste. In the end to product is the same and you saved yourself time and money.


He starts out with some History on Carpentry and reccomends an book from the late 1800s that you should read as well...teaches you about the aspects of trim work and so on. Why this peice of trim belongs here and not that one. Anyone can nail up trim and build cabinets, but to make it looks good and be correct is a whole nother thing.
