Modern Carpentry
Willis H. Wagner, Howard "Bud" Smith, Mark W. Huth


The 11th Edition of Modern Carpentry - Essential Skills for the Building Trades includes two new chapters, covering framing with steel and the building of decks and porches, as well as numerous text and illustration changes to depict current materials and practices. The text provides detailed coverage of all aspects of light frame construction, including site preparation and layout; foundations; framing and sheathing; roofing; windows and doors; exterior finish; stairs; cabinetry, and finishing procedures for interior walls, floors, and ceilings.

Beyond a solid discussion of building basics, Modern Carpentry covers special topics such as constructing stairs, chimneys, fireplaces, and decks. Systems-built (prefabricated) houses, remodeling, cabinet installation, solar construction, and painting and decorating are also covered.

To familiarize carpentry students with other aspects of the building trades, the text includes chapters on mechanical systems: electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. Throughout the text, safe working practices are emphasized, and special attention is paid to proper use of the latest tools, materials, and prefabricated components.

  • Chapters are arranged in a logical sequence, similar to the order in which the phases of building construction are performed.
  • Includes many step-by-step procedures set as boxed features.
  • Uses clear, nontechnical language and detailed illustrations to provide the most easy-to-understand presentation of any carpentry book on the market.
  • Provides useful career information in a dedicated chapter and more than 20 “On-the-Job” features throughout the book that describe specific building trades occupations.
  • Provides detailed coverage of both residential and light commercial construction.
