Marking Guide Puts Biscuits in Right Place
I used to guess where a biscuit slot should go, but now I make sure. With my biscuit joiner, I cut slots for #0, #10, and #20 biscuits into a piece of scrapwood. Then, I mark the centerline on some matching biscuits and glue them into the slots (as shown right). Now I have a handy guide that shows me where to cut when there's no room for guesswork.
