  1. I love this technique invisible joins. Nice video
    good teacher.
    thanxs for show us .

    1. “INVISIBLE” DON’T YOU SEE THE SCREEWS?

  2. Check it out!!

  3. No screws bub. That’s why you buy the tool in the first place.

  4. good presenter. knows his stuff

    Wouldn’t it be strong enough without the screws? Surely the the reason for
    the biscuits is to eliminate screws.

    1. Biscuits are also an aid in aligning parts, note that they would inhibit
      warping of two long boards joined together as in a barn door type build.

  6. Just want to mention that one of the main reasons you use a biscuit joiner
    is for alignment.

  7. good vid. thanks

  8. very helpful video, thanks so much for posting! You did a great job
    explaining / demonstrating.

    1. ONLY A MUSICIAN COULD SAY THAT THIS WAS A GOOD VIDEO. BUT A
      WOODWORKER…….

    Matt, You missed why the screws are used. Clean ’em out and pay
    attention.

  10. Jonathan Barrick

    these lil’ biscuit thing-ies!

  11. yeah, why do both, the whole point of doing one is so you don’t have to do
    the other…… I usually just pre-drill and use screws. Biscuits.. lol…
    little time consuming, not like they add that much strength anyway.

    1. Biscuits are often used as aids in aligning two or more parts, they are
      good for that as well as adding strength when glued properly. Dowels or
      tenons would likely be stronger but more expensive to install and more
      difficult.

  12. Why do you only put glue in the slots and why not on the face of the boards
    there are not slotted ? Surely that would be stronger.

    1. You are right, the more glue the better up to a point of course. The point
      being that any glue expelled from the joint is not strengthening the joint.

  13. I showed this video to my 14 y/o daughter, and now we’re going to build a
    backboard and shelf for a mirror. Thank you for posting this, and for
    taking the time to share your knowledge.

  15. OR SCREWS OR BISCUITS… BUT BOTH???? WHY WOULD YOU NEED SOMETHINGS THAT
    STRONG? AND MOREOVER: DON’T SCREEWS DAMAGE THE BISCUITS????

  16. Learned a few things, thank you.

  17. I love how rude people call him bub and say he is wrong to do what he did
    yet I don’t see them making a video to help just a mouthy responses…
    Woodworking has many different roads to reach the same end and it paved
    with people’s opinions. People that have nothing better to do but be little
    whining children. Thank you for a great video, I appreciate your hard work
    in making it.

  18. Never use impact drivers for cabinetry.
    Nor screws, lol :)

  19. Great web site. A lot of useful information here. I am sending it to some friends ans additionally sharing in delicious. And certainly, thanks for your sweat!
