I was reading a really old Woodsmith magazine about edging plywood and they suggested cutting a spline into the edge of the plywood and then a groove into the hardwood edge. Do you think this would be a better way? I was recently using biscuits and had several of them installed into one edge and had glue on them, ready to install into the other edge and noticed that they had started to swell. Almost to the point of not being able to get them in the mating bicuit grooves. I was wondering if the hydraulic action of the moisture in the biscuit could potentially cause the plywood to split along plys causing a high spot on the ply top?
