For instance, When we first joined the internet
I noticed right away that people were talking about HTML, URLs, GIFs and
all sorts of other things that we are all supposed to know. It took a while
to get with it but I felt I would appear stupid if I asked "What is HTML?"
What I needed, and finally found, was a site that spelled it out for me.
For that reason I am starting a collection of woodworking terminology and names of joints with their meanings.
If you should come across a term 'or whatever' which you don't understand, connected to woodworking, please contact me and ask. If I know the answer I'll email it to you and then put it on this page to help other people. I promise I won't laugh or publish your name as having asked the question.
If I do not know the answer I will attempt to find it and we will all learn something.
I am starting small and will build as I think of terms someone may not know. Feed back from visitors to the page will help me to compile the list.
