I’m new to the site and while I’ve been working with wood most of my life (making it into sawdust) – I’m just a beginner. I read the forums and learn, learn, learn. I love seeing everyones posts and projects and getting ideas for jigs and such.
One thing that always throws me off, though, are the abbreviations.
Here’s an example – I read with great interest HorizontalMike’s post about his newly purchase Rosewood crackinghttp://lumberjocks.com/topics/48360 and have read several other posts, too, that mention BLO and CA and I’m gonna be embarrassed when I hear what they stand for, I’m sure. I also know theres a bunch more abbreviations out there, I just can’t think of them right now. I’m not saying there shouldn’t be any ‘cause I think they add something to the conversations, but maybe there should be a link to a good “abbreviation definitions” blog on this site or something….???!!!
BTW, WTF I am very familiar with!
