I hope your dictionary gives the meanings in the US, Canadian, English, Aussie, and New Zealand dialects of woodworking. All of us sometimes have to read beyond the words to understand what someone else is describing. Welcome to the forum. If you don't understand don't be be afraid to ask. Someone else is probably wondering too.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
