  1. I use pocket screws in making face frames for my cabinets. I only use biscuit joinery when making table tops. That's just how I do, but everyone is different. Nice video.

  2. To all the nay Sayers. These are just techniques you can use or not use. The biscuits keep the face frame inline and the screws in the shelfs act as clamps so you can move on to the next step. You should be grateful he shared this great video with us. It helped me.

  3. Thanks. I used your technique with great results. You 90* angle jig and the shim under the work piece allowed me to make beautiful cabinets w/out using pocket screws.

  4. Hi I was wondering what's the minimum thickness you can use a biscuit jointer with just got one and not used one before

  5. I love how rude people call him bub and say he is wrong to do what he did yet I don't see them making a video to help just a mouthy responses… Woodworking has many different roads to reach the same end and it paved with people's opinions. People that have nothing better to do but be little whining children. Thank you for a great video, I appreciate your hard work in making it.

  6. OR SCREWS OR BISCUITS… BUT BOTH???? WHY WOULD YOU NEED SOMETHINGS THAT STRONG? AND MOREOVER: DON'T SCREEWS DAMAGE THE BISCUITS????

  7. I showed this video to my 14 y/o daughter, and now we're going to build a backboard and shelf for a mirror. Thank you for posting this, and for taking the time to share your knowledge.

  8. Why do you only put glue in the slots and why not on the face of the boards there are not slotted ? Surely that would be stronger.

  9. yeah, why do both, the whole point of doing one is so you don't have to do the other…… I usually just pre-drill and use screws. Biscuits.. lol… little time consuming, not like they add that much strength anyway.
