In this one-of-a-kind treasury of carpentry wisdom, Norm Abram celebrates the tradition of his craft - and hands down the secrets he has learned in more than thirty years as a master carpenter.
Norm distills a lifetime of experience into seventy short, simple lessons. From what kind of pencil to use (a thick-leaded carpenter's pencil is best for framing) to drilling an exploratory hole without damaging plumbing or wiring (use a short length of coat-hanger wire rather than a drill bit), here is an indispensable compendium of brass-tacks advice and tried-and-true tricks of the trade.
Illustrated with handsome engravings and drawings of hand tools, Measure Twice, Cut Once is the essential guide for anyone who has ever put hammer to nail.
