    1. In theatrical scenery terms, a 3-8" strip of fabric used to conceal seams between flats. Normally, it is first soaked in a mixture of wood glue and water (in olden times, wheat paste). The excess is then squeezed out and then the strip is applied to the flat covering the seam.

    2. In general carpentry, any sort of surface-applied patch to mask a defect. Alleged origin: the Dutch people, being of a frugal nature, would patch an item with a small surface defect.
