Library Journal Review

Schuttner, an accomplished builder, is known for his previous best-selling carpentry guide, Basic Stairbuilding (Taunton Pr., 1990) . His current book, designed for the accomplished do-it-yourselfer and profusely illustrated with both photographs and line drawings, is another professional effort. Schuttner wisely recommends spending more time designing than building, pointing out that mistakes that could otherwise prove disastrous are easily corrected in the design stage. All the basics and most of the secondary considerations are addressed with clarity, simplicity, and sensitivity. For most building collections. (Index not seen.)-- Alex Hartmann, Bloomsburg Univ.
