In a frame-and-panel door, it's just the groove that holds the panel.
Obviously, Ralph is looking for something else.

Hey Ralph,

I call it a dado, but I imagine that there is a specific Britishism that you're looking for.

The bit between the mortises is the groove (or whatever you guys call it) it is the bit from the mortise to the end of the stile that I am interested in...

Eric was close...

Ralph :wink:

Hey Ralph,

The only thing that I can think of in that case are the horns of the stile, which are cut off after assembly. I don't think that is what you're after.

Well, if Eric was close with haunched mortise perhaps it's a mortised haunch.

What I was looking for was:

Haunching - "A recess cut in a stile to receive the Haunch of a tenon"

Ralph :wink:

Hey Ralph,

Wait a minute... are you trying to turn a participle in to a noun? So, the recess is called, "a haunching"? Hmmm, methinks that smacks of what my English teacher would call, neoverbage. But hey, it is your language. :D

Tom

Tom m'friend. That's the first thought that popped into my head. But reason prevailed when I considered that haunching could indeed be a noun. When the fruit of the vine pours forth from the press, do we not refer to it as a pressing? I know first hand that you appreciate fine dinning as our local pot lucks which you host are more than convincing testimony.

One can reflect on any number of similar examples. But what really fascinates me is where Ralph finds all this stuff!

Hi Guys,

In this case the word is a noun as in 'A Haunching' rather than doing some 'haunching' Maybe I should of added the indefinite (or definite for that matter) article to my answer...

...This is from a 1901 glossary of wood and woodworking terms found in the back of a contemporary book on Joinery (in the English sense of the word). Most of The Puzzler questions come from dusty old books. I try to find stuff that is not easy to Google...

Ralph :wink:
