|Kitchen Smart: Cabinets
Publication Date: July 15, 2011 The Kitchen Smart books are among the most up-to-date and well-researched series available that deal with kitchen remodeling and design issues. With more than half of a typical kitchen budget devoted to cabinets, it is no surprise that the first volume deals exclusively with this critical design component. This book is incredibly thorough, exploring every topic of importance, from different construction methods to available material options to various door styles to hardware and finish possibilities to the trade-offs among RTA, stock, semi-custom, and custom cabinets. Additionally, a great deal of practical advice is offered regarding ways to maximize storage space and accessibility, to save costs, and to deal effectively with service professionals.
Here I see the author has gone and upped the ante with an unbelievably comprehensive and detailed guide to cabinets. As everyone knows, cabinets are the most expensive part of a kitchen and before I dropped a small fortune I wanted to be sure I knew what I was getting myself into. I tried looking up some information online, tried reading some general kitchen guides, but all of that paled in comparison with this informative and well-written book. Definitely recommend.
|Taunton's Trim Complete: Expert Advice from Start to Finish
Publication Date: January 1, 2008
"Trim Complete" covers those important finishing touches that give a house a one-of-a-kind personality: trim and molding. An expert carpenter, Greg Kossow presents a vibrantly visual guide that details every possible project, from the most basic baseboards, to the most complicated casings. He tackles real-world situations with authoritative advice, never failing to address how to solve problems when things do go wrong. The book's ingenious design makes it a snap to find the relevant information for each project and Kossow includes a crystal-clear table of contents. Plus, unlike most other books that only deal with basic carpentry, "Trim Complete" includes hard-to-find advice on complex crown molding and making custom molding.
I have many Taunton publishing books and as usual the photography is excellent! I have looked at other trim books and usually they are full of 'line' drawings. There is nothing like a great pic to illustrate how a project is being done.
