my wife, daughter, and i recently moved into a new house in las vegas, nv. i don’t want to step on any toes, but the trim work, and carpentry here in general, is about the worst i have ever seen. that is another topic all together, but my wife and i hope to slowly replace the baseboard trim, add window trim, repaint, etc. to make this house into a “home.” I’m looking for a book that would pass on some good tricks for trimming. i’m an experienced woodworker, but haven’t done much house work. looking for tips on things like replacing baseboard with carpet in place, sucking trim in to walls grossly out of flat and heavily textured, maybe a book oriented towards remodeling would be better. i had thought about taking a finish carpentry class at unlv, but don’t even know if they would have a trade school, and i work full time anyway. do you guys have any ideas about books, or should i just go for it, tear stuff out then figure it out? thanks in advance…
