Manual of First and Second Fixing Carpentry, 3rd ed by Les Goring
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Beginning with the fundamentals of carpentry work within a domestic construction setting, this book goes on to cover a wide range of first-fixing operations prior to plastering and second-fixing operations after plastering. Each chapter covers the subject in great detail with step-by-step illustrations and text. Now in full colour, this edition has been updated throughout to take recent changes to the Building Regulations into account. The book is fully up to date with current industry best practice and technological developments, and a new chapter has been incorporated to address Sharpening Traditional Saws. The breadth of coverage and easily accessible `how-to' approach makes this text an ideal resource for the 2000 apprentices per year taking NVQs and 1500 following Construction Awards within the Wood Occupations (City & Guilds / Construction skills). The technical detail and practical focus ensures that this book will be a vital purchase for these students, and an essential reference for any experienced carpenter or joiner.
