    What is on your list of "Pet peeve" words that are overused in woodworking?







    **Rules**
    There is no minimum post requirement,
    Leprechauns, primates, woodticks, arcane fact finders, and wood lovers are welcome to post an answer.
    But who cares, no ones reads the rules anyhow....

    Bespoke: An old word, usually used in tailoring, that is sadly on the rise.

    Handmade and handcrafted: These words are unnecessary. Do you build stuff with your feet? Your elbows? Or in @Brink 's case, his tail?

    Wood... I see that word everywhere, and it seems silly. Obviously it’s made of wood, so why does everyone have to point it out?

    When I’m curating a bespoke, hand-crafted, upcycled piece from artisinal exhibition grade scrap material in a primitive fashion, I don’t see the need to point out that it’s made of wood.

    Nobody gets to join my woodworking group when they say they’re interested in primitive techniques
