I am working with a couple of pieces of software that require naming elements before you can attach attributes to them.
I am trying to come up with one-word descriptors for the various parts of a faceframe.
Stiles are vertical parts on the perimeter.
Mullions are vertical parts inside the frame.
I called the top rail a HEADER so that I did not have to stipulate Top or Bottom Rail.
Not sure what to call the two interior vertical elements as they share rules associated with stiles & mullions.
Can anybody suggest a one-word description for what I call HEADER?
I'll be curious to find if this exercise will bring out the differences in regional terminology, but I'd call your items the following:
? = Mid Stile
I look forward to the other answers.
I'm with you Gary, those are the terms I use. I always associated mullions and muntins with window frames
My bet is on Mark Vierno calling drawers "draws".
Good one Tim
Header = Fascia
Why not :
If shop employees see these names what do 90% of the current and previous shop employees call these parts?
The catch is the "one word" requirement!
If it has to be one word remove the space. I like this because it gives you the location and when working with inexperienced people easier to train.
Why not :
Alan makes a good point when he asks who the constituents are to this conversation. In order to be effective in communicating everybody needs to understand what you are talking about. In our situation the constituents would include Cabinetmakers - Customers - Computers.
One of the criteria for a good name selector is how well it plays with software. A lot of times these parts show up on lists and need to have some kind of (usually) alphabetical ordering.
There is also position in space to consider. At my shop we colloquially call the top straps on a base cabinet "stretchers". We use the same name whether or not they are in the front of the cabinet or at the back.
The problem is that Dynamic Components (in Sketchup, for example), need to know precisely where these parts live in order to place them in the model. For this reason the front & back needs clear differentiation.
Stiles need to be designated as either Left or Right sides because sometimes they have conditionally different math associated with them. The differences are primarily keyed to how they terminate with the world.
Sometimes how you name things can provide a call to action. When you have an "Eclipsed" stile you need to make a decision about which cabinet should be installed first.
Both cabinets in a 90º corner need to be evaluated for whether or not a drawer can completely open or a door can fully swing without crashing into an appliance projection.
The description StileScribe begs the question of how much extra material to add for scribing to to irregular walls.
A subset to this consideration is to ask about adjacent door or window casing treatment. If the door has a head casing and crown you need to make sure your door can fully open without colliding with crown projection.
Sometimes scribes (or panels) are eclipsed by window or door casings.
Having these types of conditions delineated can create additional protocol that helps solve problems before they become problems.
cabmaker, so on the stiles
simple but u know each location and application
We use more descriptive words rather than codes so stile on base door is different than a stile on a door drawer which is different than a stile on a std drawer, variable drawer, large drawer.
If a part gets mitered to some thing we use (left to right) SQ-MTR, SQ-SQ, MTR-MTR MTR-SQ.
We do a lot of unique descriptions so when we do FF in retail a left stile on one fixture is a different condition than a left stile on another fixture. We may mix martials and or finishes.
