Traditional Joinery Book


TRADITIONAL JOINERY Sydney Houses 1810-1915 By Wal Murray & Alan Croker

"Traditional Joinery concentrates on 19 houses in the Sydney area known to Wal Murray and Alan Croker, and using these examples, explains the history of Australian joinery at least in the Sydney context. There is a wonderful record of what exists - doors, windows, staircases and chimneypieces have all been measured and there are excellent full size sections to pore over. The book concludes with sound advice on the conservation and repair of joinery.

This is a book that everyone interested in the detail of Australian architecture should own."
