Do You Like Biscuits?
Poll - October 1, 2013
In case you aren’t familiar, biscuits are small football-shaped discs that are inserted into a complimentary slot cut into a board. If you have a biscuit joiner, you simply line the tool up with a center line on each board to be joined and plunge. The pre-made biscuits fit perfectly (sometimes) into the slots and with the addition of glue, add some strength to the joint. Personally, I began my woodworking journey using biscuits but as time marched on, I began to use them for alignment purposes only. Once the Festool Domino came out, providing more depth and strength than a biscuit, I no longer had a need for a biscuit joiner.
Some folks hate them, others love them. What do you think of biscuit joints?
