Woodworking Quiz

1. What is the origin of the classic Raised Panel Door? A: The Raised Panel Door is a brilliant solution to the problem that occurs when wood moves. Cabinet (and house) doors used to be solid slabs of wood that would warp, twist, or crack, and then not fit any more. The raised panel door has a frame that is held rigid by the jointery, and a grove around the inside that allows the center panel to expand and contract a little while keeping the overall size of the door the same. 2. What is the most dangerous tool in a woodworking shop? A: The one you are using. [Bob, what does this mean?] 3. What is the difference between Fiddle Back Maple, Tiger Maple, and Figured Maple. A: Absolutely nothing, they are different names for the same cut of wood.
