« Part 1: What I have learned Part 2 of Splines vs Biscuit Joiner series Part 3: Assembly At Last »

Spent the day filling in the spline slots and trimming. Used the PC 557 to set biscuits and glued up one mitered side. Plan to glue up the other side in a few hours after this one sets up. Then on to the top, back, and bottom before attaching the sides. Drawers after that.

I am totally impressed with the biscuit joiner. It will save me hours of time and improve my accuracy 100%.

All I can say is WOW! What an invention.

I use them too I am making a small table 21×34 and I used biscuits on the top, I will use pocket screews to to tie the top to the rallings and on my legs, I love those pocket hole screews.

This month’s FWW magazine has an article on cutting miters for edge trim and using biscuits. I swear your pics look very similar to the pics in the article. Of course you are both doing the same thing. I just thought what a coincidence.
