Minimum Width A Buscuit Joiner Can Connect

The longer the fence, the more easily you can hold It firmly against the workpiece. Fence length varies widely from model to model. For cutting accurate miter slots, we prefer a fence that wraps around the edge and has a wide support area. Some biscuit joiners do not have this 135-degree setting. The slide mechanism that the motor travels on should have a minimum of play.This will result In accurate slots of consistent size. Hooking up a biscuit joiner to a vacuum virtually eliminates dust....

Overhang

Your mortises should create a gap of 1 16 in. or slightly less between the door and the frame, Usually, this means the hinge leaves must be recessed slightly below the surface. if they're flush, the gap will be too wide, If they're too deep, the gap will disappear and the door will bind. BARREL Calculate the hinge mortise depth by subtracting 1 16 in. from the hinge barrel diameter and dividing the remainder in half. 4Locate the hinges on a test piece, using a projection guide to position the...

Double Biscuit Joints

Alternate Grain Direction When Using Double Biscuits Biscuits are made from compressed beech wood. The grain runs diagonally across the biscuit. The biscuit is weakest along this grain line. When you install two biscuits in a joint, put them in will the grains running in opposite directions. This will counteract the short-grain Using two biscuits in a double-wide slot is a great way to increase joint strength when the stock is too thin for two separate slots. This is especially useful when...

Extended Drawer Front

For a refined look, extend roll-out fronts to cover the ends of the slides. Use dadoes to attach an extended front on shallow roll-outs. For taller roll-outs, use biscuits.

Lower Side Cabinet

Figure B Base Assembly Exploded View Pick the best looking sheets for the sides of the lower side cabinets and sides of the upper side cabinets C2, D2 . These pieces are arranged on the plywood layout see Fig. M, page 59 , so the grain matches when the cabinets are assembled. I used birch plywood for the inner parts of the lower cabinet rather than cherry plywood and saved about S250 on materials. When stained, the color of the birch plywood becomes very similar 10 the stained cherry plywood....
