Trim carpentry provides the finishing touches that dress up a home, including such details as moldings, window or door casings, and wainscoting. Most of the projects in these two books are well within the abilities of the average do-it-yourselfer. Like other volumes in the "Smart Guide" series, the title by Feirer (Trim; Attics; Windows & Doors) is short and to the point, with excellent color illustrations and brief but sufficient instructions. Williams's offering is more detailed, with numerous step-by-step photographs and much more comprehensive instructions. Both titles show how to install moldings and casings as well as other standard trim carpentry tasks, but Williams (Creative Storage Solutions for Your Home) offers much more variety (e.g., how to build both paint-grade and stain-grade wainscoting projects), as well as numerous additional projects (installing closet doors, parquet flooring, closet organizers, and built-in cabinets). Both titles are excellent, so perhaps the purchasing decision should be based on one's budget; Feirer's short book is a great value, but Williams's offers much more though at a higher price.
