'He shows you how to make your own jig for routing out the strings...it is all about the setting out and that is well covered. Tips for fixing creaky staircases and loose newel posts is justification enough for buying this book. The target audience has to be the carpentry apprentice who can dip into this book as a reference and keep it close by'. Apprentice Builder -------------------- '...this amazing book...this is the best resource I have come across...the only publication that not only breaks each element down into manageable literary parts but gives photos with such clarity that you can follow and have an engagement with the subject. ...whether you are a tradesperson or just an avid woodworker this is the definitive book to read...' Craig Leach, Lecturer/Assessor/Teaching, Learning & Assessment Coach, East Riding College -------------------- '...I am now very excited that the UK market has at last got its own dedicated and more importantly up-to-date and truly modern book on one of my favourite subjects. ... this book will become the bible on all things stairs for every student and expert'.
