Can anyone suggest a good resources (there might be one here I couldn’t find) to reference for woodworking specific terminology. I’m a newbie and trying to learn as much as I can. All these rabbets, dados, mortises and tenons and keeping me busy!

Subscribe to magazines and go to the library. There are a ton of great books on woodworking at my local library.
Oh, and here: I started a blog for you… “What does THAT mean?

Tim – The best advice I can offer is, don’t listen to me. I tend to make up my own shauminoligy as I go. Hey, I’m the guy that voted for “squishage” as a word. ;-)
