Overview

About the Product

The third Canadian Edition of Vogt/Nauth’s Carpentry is the market-leading Carpentry text in Canada, designed for community college students enrolled in Apprenticeship and Diploma programs. Developed in line with the 2015 National Building Code of Canada, Carpentry provides students with both the theory and industry knowledge required to apprentice and go on to work in the carpentry trade. The core of the carpentry trade as practiced in Canada is covered in four comprehensive sections: Tools and Materials, Rough Carpentry, Exterior Finish, and Interior Finish. Each section features step-by-step procedures for all stages of construction, important safety precautions, tips of the trade, and a look at anticipated future trends in the construction industry. The engaging design and layout is accompanied by a focus on necessary soft skills and features that build necessary critical thinking skills (“What’s Wrong With This Picture” and “Deconstruct This”). All measurements are given in both imperial and metric systems. MindTap helps theory come alive with interactive learning tools, videos and animations for kinesthetic and visual learners while the learning path keeps students on track. This engaging resource prepares apprentices for their future careers like nothing else on the market.

Features

  • Measurements in the text are recorded in both metric and imperial units – some conversions are approximate, such as 4 feet (1.2 m), whereas others are exact, especially in building code references, such as 7 7∙8 inches (200 mm) for the maximum rise for a set of stairs to a dwelling unit.

  • A “Success Story” opens each of the sections in the book, providing a look at the day-to-day job of a carpenter and the successes accomplished through dedication and education.

  • Safety Reminders and cautions prominently feature the latest safety considerations so that readers can avoid the dangers of certain procedures, tools, and equipment in order to stay safe on the job. Structural and health and safety issues are aligned to the National Building Code of Canada, 2015 edition.

  • A section in the introduction covers the critical soft skills required of successful and proficient carpenters. Coverage of important organizations, including the Carpenters’ Union and Skills Canada, that help students keep up to date on industry expectations is also included.

  • Two new features dedicated to building critical thinking skills: “What’s Wrong With This Picture?” a feature at the end of some units that includes an incorrect application or scenario as well as a corrected one. “Deconstruct This” is a feature illustrates situations where a problem may or may not exist in the construction process, giving students the opportunity to consider what is right and wrong and to develop their critical thinking skills.

  • Visually intensive content featuring photorealistic drawings and full-colour jobsite photos, drawn from live construction sites in geographically diverse locations in Canada, bridge the gap between the classroom and the jobsite.

Michael Nauth

Michael Nauth was born in Guyana. His family immigrated to Canada in 1967. He finished high school in Scarborough, Ontario, and began working in construction in 1972, in both the residential and commercial sectors. He obtained his carpenter’s licence in 1978 in Fort St. John, British Columbia. After moving to Ottawa, he started a residential construction company. He obtained his Ontario licence in the early 1990s. A few years later he passed the Inter-Provincial Certificate of Qualification Red Seal Exam. Michael took training to teach in carpentry, receiving his diploma from McGill University in Montreal. He would later complete a B.Sc. in mathematics at Carleton University in Ottawa. He began teaching night school in carpentry at Algonquin College (Ottawa) in 1984; he was hired as a full-time instructor there in 1989. He is currently Coordinator and Professor of the Carpentry Apprenticeship programs. He has also served as a building supervisor, foreman, and board member with Habitat for Humanity—National Capital Region and Global Village. He has coordinated and judged carpentry competitions for Skills Canada–Ontario and for the Carpenters’ Union, Local 93. Besides several other construction textbooks, he has reviewed Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s Canadian Wood Frame House Construction, 2005 edition. He has worked as a carpenter and a trainer in Russia and is currently engaged by Canada Wood to assist with training needs and quality assurance of the residential construction industry in China. Michael is proud father of four sons, Aaron, Anthony, Jason, and Jonathan. They have all helped Dad in the summers on the construction site and have experienced, first-hand, the adrenaline rush, the addictive buzz, and the sweet sleep that follows an honest, hard day’s work.
