Also know, what size biscuit do I need?

**What Size Biscuit** to Use. As a general rule, try to use the largest **size biscuit** possible, as this **will** provide the greatest amount of strength to the joint. In most cases, use #20 **biscuits**, but when working on narrower material, switch to smaller **biscuits** where appropriate.

**biscuit joiner**will

**cut**a slot 1/32″

**deeper**than half the width of your

**biscuit**. The additional 1/32″ provides a little wiggle room, as well as room for glue. If it is set too

**deep**, the

**biscuits**will be too far embedded on one piece, and won't deliver the holding power that we want.

Similarly, you may ask, how many feet is a biscuit?

Two **biscuits per foot** is a great rule of thumb, but the goal is just to make the alignment task easier. So, if you have a couple of edges that are 24″ in length and are dead straight & perhaps you would only need two **biscuits** to do the job.

**Biscuits** don't really add much strength. They are more for alignment, where the dowels will add a good deal of strength. When done correctly, a **biscuit joint** is at least as **strong** as a similar size mortise and tenon **joint**, and decidedly **stronger** than a dowel **joint**.”
