My wood ID site, www.hobbithouseinc.com/personal/woodpics/
has gotten rather good reviews over the years, including on this forum, and I am now attacking a "wood and woodworking terms" glossary with the same energy and exacting standards I applied to the wood ID site.
The thing is, while I know a lot about a lot, there is REALLY A LOT that I don't know so I'm winging it on some of the entries, reading books and on-line articles and trying to condense what I learn down into glossary entries. It is still a work in progress but I've done over 1,100 entries so far, several hundred with what I believe to be very helpful illustrations, with much more to come.
I'd really appreciate any corrections and/or additions that anyone cares to make. My goal is to provide the most comprehensive, and accurate, wood and woodworking glossary in existance. The "most comprehensive" I can do all by myself (by just making stuff up
) but the "accurate" part is where I might come up short and would appreciate any help you care to give. Here's the URL:
I would also appreciate everyone spreading the word about what I hope will become a very useful on-line reference source for all of us. I doubt many folks on this forum read about new people who have joined and very few will see this post, so please consider putting up a reference on your favorite section of this forum to help spread the word. The more folks I can get to tell me how wrong I have gotten things, the better the glossary will eventually become for us all both as a reference and to point folks to so we don't have to waste our time explaining things that are already in the glossary.
