Complementing Book 1of the same title, this text takes the student up to the City and Guilds full Craft Certificate level. All aspects of the course are dealt with, along with the associated scientific background, mathematical calculations and drawings required. Although prior knowledge of the subject as provided in Book 1 is assumed , important principles are repeated so that this book can be read independently of the companion volume. Extensively illustrated, each chapter begins with clearly defined objectives and concludes with a series or questions and assignments. The text will prove invaluable as a general workbook for those following advanced woodworking courses, including CITB students and self-employed carpenters, joiner and builders. It is useful supplementary reading for those taking courses in brickwork and cabinetmaking, for trainee woodworking machinists and construction technicians as well as for students of City and Guilds Foundation courses.
