Boat Joinery and Cabinet Making Simplified
McGraw Hill Professional, May 15, 1993 - Sports & Recreation - 256 pages
Drawing upon more than 60 years' experience as a boatbuilder, cabinetmaker, and designer, Fred Bingham has revamped his classic Practical Yacht Joinery to appeal to a whole new generation of boaters. This book is about building things with wood-from a new cup rack to a completely new interior, Fred's gift for providing simple explanations for complex problems can transform a rank beginner who has never held a hammer into a journeyman boat carpenter, and a journeyman carpenter into a true craftsman. Today's cookie-cutter production boats (and for that matter today's small homes and RVs), are cursed with a dull and impersonal sameness. This book can teach you how to visualize what you want it to be-and how to build it yourself.
