Context of texture

Woodworking posts will be winding down now that warm weather waxes once again. But this is one. The goblet box I just finished recently has three different textures, the top is very smooth, the sides have some shallow scoopings from the plane, and the bottom is fairly rough.

Christopher Schwarz has been making some medieval furniture lately, including a fairly common trestle table (which I wasn't aware of when making mine, which is a slightly different type). And he has this post about the textures of finished surfaces:

So this gives a context to texture that I rather agree with. There is more alliteration here though.
