Topic tags/keywords: grove dado rabbit

I always called a notch cut in the edge of wood a Rabbit. But, I remember reading somewhere that there is a different name for a Rabbit that goes cross the grain. I think it started with an F. What is its correct name?

You are probably thinking of “fillester” or “fillister”.
