Library Journal Review

Haun, a carpenter with nearly 50 years of experience who still volunteers for Habitat for Humanity, has produced an excellent guide that will prove useful to amateurs and professional carpenters alike. Haun's pleasant and informative writing style makes readers feel as if they are working by his side, just like the apprentices he has trained for more than two decades. Sections cover both hand and power tools plus numerous skills such as framing and stairbuilding. The instructions are presented in a clear, step-by-step manner, and the illustrations and numerous color photographs are excellent. Those needing a truly basic title may want to consider Step-by-Step Basic Carpentry (Better Homes & Gardens, 1997); however, Haun's book is preferred because of the wealth of personal experience he provides. The first in Taunton's new "Homebuilding Basics" series, this superb title is recommended for all public libraries.ÄJonathan N. Hershey, Akron-Summit Cty. P.L. (c) Copyright 2010.
