Some vocabulary

Recommended Posts

HEllo,

I want to find info on the Net about my new sketchup plugin (GKware Cabmaker) but I have vocabulary issues. I'm looking how to make a cabinet with a "dominant back".

 

Dominant bakc being the direct (and apparently wrong) translation of "fond dominant" in french. How do you english speaker tell the difference between the pieces that goes over the other one? In french we "dominé VS dominant"... Yes, like in BDSM.

In case I was still not clear enough: My "dominant back" would not be in a groove, It would be the exact same size (ou 1mm less) than my cabinet, and screwed in the sides, top and bottom.

thanks to all.

And more generaly, how do you call the piece that goes onto the other? what adjective would you use?

That depends on the context. If you don't know the exact word, just use the usual adjectives: top, upper, leftmost, exterior, etc. People will get it.
