Book helps with trim, molding projects

Architectural trim is to a room what a sparkling pin is to the little black dress. It turns good enough into great.

"Ultimate Guide to Trim Carpentry" makes that extra level of sophistication more accessible to do-it-yourselfers. The book offers guidance and instructions for more than 45 projects, along with plenty of ideas for using trim to beef up a room. Amateur carpenters will welcome the table of compound miter saw settings for cutting tricky crown molding.

Published by Creative Homeowner, the book is priced at $19.95.
