Hank; You are correct, the AAW Journal index is hideous to use and search. Maybe they could improve it.

I doubt there is any standard nomenclature for the different cuts. But I am interested in the results of your query.... The first step in knowledge is to ask a question.

There are only two different ways to cut wood. Scrapes and cuts.

Scrape: The tool is presented to the wood with the bevel NOT in contact with the wood.

Cut: The tool is presented to the wood with the bevel in contact with the wood and supporting the cutting edge.
