If you’re worried about alignment on long glue-ups, try using a spline joint instead of biscuits. Nothing special needed other than a tablesaw. I regularly glue up tops that are 6-8’ long. I used to use biscuits but its much quicker to cut a groove into the edges and use a spline. That way when you’re in a panic doing a glue up with 5 or 6 pieces, alignment is not an issue at all. Put the glue on, get the bar clamps on!
