For anyone with basic woodworking skills up to the most skilled master craftsman, this book provides a unique perspective on built-ins -- from strategic planning, to dealing with idiosyncratic spaces, to practical advice on a wide range of projects.

As the latest addition to our successful Build Like A Pro series, Built-Ins gives you 192 pages of insights and guidance from longtime how-to author Bob Settich.

You'll discover all the tools, tips and techniques you need to tackle everything from shelves and drawers to closets and entertainment centers. And you'll pick up all the trade secrets you need to add permanent value to your home, by creating attractive storage space and eliminating clutter.

Here are a few examples of what you'll find:

* How to plan built-ins to achieve their function and fit the space where they're being installed

* Strategies for meeting the challenges of this type of building, such as walls out of plumb, uneven floors and the random vagaries you'll encounter, especially in older houses

* Smart ways to use stock cabinetry to create a custom-built look without starting from scratch

By taking a practical step-by-step approach to every project and procedure, this useful reference volume delivers everything you need to design, plan and construct built-ins to enhance any home.
