The Gateway Project
The goal of this project is to fulfill the request for a “wiki” or “glossary of terms” for the site.

Here is the link to the woodworking terminology list.
And here is a posting re: acronyms
Please add to it – either providing a definition or a request for a definition._

  Wood: Selection & Curing Tools & Equipment Cutting/Sawing/Ripping Planing/Smoothing/Scraping/Sanding Designing Projects & Components Carving Turning Joining Finishing Embellishing Photographing & Promoting Displaying Finished Projects Selling Projects Miscellaneous


Also: check out this discussion / tips list by our members. (Thanks GaryK)
