First published in 1907, this is a complete guide to joinery with a specific focus on cabinet making. 'Joinery' refers to the wooden components of a building, such as stairs, doors, and door and window frames. Including instructions for designing and practical step-by-step directions, this timeless volume will be of utility to DIY enthusiasts and those with an interest in woodwork in general. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 – 1916) was an Australian engineer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the 'do-it-yourself' book, producing many books on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: “Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning” (1881), “The Wrath-Jobber's Handy Book” (1887), and “Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them” (1887). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
