Biscuit Joinery With A Router

Want to try biscuit joinery? Use your router to cut the biscuit slots. We've come up with a baseplate that makes it quick and easy.

The best thing about biscuit joiners is their simplicity. You mark the center of each biscuit slot, then you cut the slot with a quick in-and-out movement of the tool. If you had round biscuits, you could do exactly the same with a slot cutter in a router.

But biscuits aren't round, they're elliptical. To cut a slot long enough for a biscuit, you have to move the router from side to side. The question is. how far?

The answer is. from one side of the bit hole to the other.

Set the router on the work, and line up the pencil mark you made
