Just starting out in Woodworking? Below is a quick description of the most common terms used throughout this series and in the woodworking trade:

Applied Carving ~ background which is worked separately and then applied, rather than being worked in place.

Bead ~ a semicircular piece of moulding.

Bench Dog ~ a peg standing proud of the bench surface.

Boister ~ shoulder

Blind ~ a term used to describe joinery whose mating surfaces do no protrude through the face or end grain of the pieces being joined. Example: blind Mortise and tenon joint.

Burl ~ a knotty growth from a tree with a convoluted, complex grain.

Moulding ~ a strip of material with various cross sections used to cover transitions between surfaces or for decoration.
