I think in some applications a biscuit doesn’t add strength to a modern glue joint. Such as a long grain to long grain joint in a table top. However an apron to table leg joint it would add strength. Also perpendicular pieces of plywood.

I just disassembled one of the first things I made out of wood. It was a 12 inch deep table for a shelf behind our head board. It was about 70 inches long. After a few weeks my wife moved the bed to the corner and the table went to the attic for 10 years. I just took it apart and was surprised at how easily the gorilla glue let go except where I had put biscuits. I’m referring to where the apron met the top. I don’t use gorilla glue anymore and my application of glue has probably improved.

-- I always suspected many gun nuts were afraid of something, just never thought popcorn was on the list.
