Create nearly invisible joints in all types of wood with our high quality, low profile biscuits. One of the biggest challenges in fine joinery is hiding fasteners. Eliminate fasteners altogether with a combination of wood glue, a powerful biscuit joiner and these fine power tool accessories, while also achieving a coveted all-wood aesthetic.
When edge-joining boards, such as when building a fine cutting board or composite table top, woodworking biscuits are the perfect solution. Using specialized blades, biscuit joiners cut perfectly sized slots in any type of wood. Simply insert one or two of these trusty fasteners into the holes, add a little glue, and just like that, your boards are securely joined, without the need for screws.
For furniture jobs, Festool biscuit joiners are worth considering. Festool produces domino joiners, which bore deeper, more angular holes for use with specialized biscuits. These domino biscuits (so named for their distinctive shape) can even stand in for a mortise and tenon in a pinch. The added strength of the resulting joint is well worth the investment.
When fitting together a project, biscuits are ideal for making sure all of the boards line up. By only gluing part of the surface that contains your joining biscuits, and leaving the rest free, you allow for the wood to expand and contract naturally due to heat and humidity. This will ensure that your work stands the test of time, even in environments with extreme weather.
There's a reason every professional cabinet making shop contains a bucket of biscuits. These unassuming little wooden discs are one of the most reliable and effective joining solutions available and have been for years. Buy in bulk and ensure that you will always have what you need to do the job right, without pesky metal fasteners sticking out of your surfaces.
