Carpentry and Joinery 3 is the third in a series of three books, which together provide an authoritative and thoroughly practical guide to carpentry and joinery for students following City & Guilds and CITB courses, NVQ candidates, and students working towards an Institute of Carpenters qualification. This book is also ideal for a wide range of amateur and professional woodworkers.

Volume 3 builds on the fundamental knowledge introduced in volume 1, and accompanies volume 2 with coverage of additional advanced topics and procedures, including working with particular door and window types. The reader is shown how to apply the basic theory introduced in volume 1 to actual carpentry and joinery practice in a highly illustrated, easily accessible text.

This second edition has been fully updated in line with changes to the Building Regulations and current legislation, the third edition also incorporates developments in current best practice, with a comprehensive match to the latest qualifications in Wood Occupations.



"… the set of books will be of immense value to all carpentry and joinery students preparing for their qualifications. The drawings and photographs, both of which are numerous, are excellent, and the descriptive matter well written. Nearly 300 pages of information well worthy of any book shelf."
Journal of the Institute of Carpenters

"… should prove of great value to students and as a source of reference for tradesmen and amateurs of some experience."
Woodworking Crafts' Magazine
