Break free from biscuit blunders

Mistake #1: Exposed biscuit slots

Mistake #1: Exposed biscuit slots

Cutting through the face of a workpiece's beveled end, as shown at top left, causes damage nearly impossible to repair. This goof happens when you cut a slot for a large (#20) biscuit at the midpoint of the bevel in 3/4"-thick stock.

Solution: Avoid this mistake by cutting the slot closer to the inside corner of the beveled end. To do this, adjust your joiner's fence, as shown middle and below. This allows you to still use a #20 biscuit without cutting through the face. (You should always use the largest biscuit possible for maximum holding power.)
