This highly illustrated textbook is written to meet the needs of candidates studying for the NVQ levels 2 and 3 in Carpentry and Joinery, and other courses at this level. Each chapter covers a specific activity such as constructing stairs or windows and includes the selection of produced components, setting out, marking out, assembly and fixing.

The book contains references to the companion volume by the same authors (Bench and Site Skills) and to the relevant regulations and standards. Together with Carpentry and Joinery: Bench and Site Skills this book will form an invaluable resource for students long after they qualify.

Brian Porter and Reg Rose were both formerly lecturers at the Leeds College of Building. They are authors of several successful books on carpentry and joinery.
