This is the first of a two-part series on the biscuit joiner.This article provides instruction on using a biscuit joiner, along with advice on setting up your machine, choosing the correct size biscuits, proper gluing techniques, and more.
Woodworkers know that there are many approaches to joining two pieces of wood together.The key is to choose the appropriate joint for the application at hand.Sometimes a project might be subjected to heavy stress during its useful life (dining chair, step stool, etc.
), and under such conditions you might call upon the industrial strength of mortise and tenon joinery, dadoes or other robust mechanical connections.On other occasions you might choose to make the joinery itself a showcase portion of the project, in which case you might choose the timeless beauty and symmetry of dovetails or finger joints.
But sometimes you are looking for a joinery method that is quick, simple, and strong enough for light to medium duty applications.In these situations, I commonly turn to my biscuit joiner.I find a biscuit joint to be great for boxes, drawers, cabinet carcasses, face frames, miters, edge banding, and as a lightweight substitute for mortise and tenon joinery.
