Stud finder locates biscuits in woodworking projects

Smooth unattractive edges using one reader's unconventional method of removing biscuits.

After marking and installing biscuit joints in several boards that I've glued up edge-to-edge, I then plane the glue-up to thickness and rip it to finished width. The problem is that, in the process, I also remove the marks that show the biscuit locations. Later, when crosscutting the glue-up to length, I sometimes cut through one of the biscuits - and that leaves me with a very unattractive edge. One day, while gluing up some long pieces of oak, I grabbed my electronic stud finder and ran it along the seam. To my surprise, it located every biscuit in the boards.
