You may have heard that using biscuits, those little compressed wafers of wood, is a form of cheating. But it's not. Biscuits make strong joints and get the job done fast. Try any one of the attractive projects inside and you'll be amazed at how quick, easy and effective the joint-making process becomes. These 12 projects offer something for everyone, from a build-in-a-weekend cupboard to a white oak bookcase and an elegant tapered dresser. Best of all, many of the pieces have been adapted from traditional designs so you can make your favorite style of furniture with fewer hassles. Veteran cabinetmaker Jim Stack starts with the basics, and also includes dozens of additional tips on how to assure safe and accurate cuts, modify a design to fit your taste, correct mistakes and make the most of this versatile tool. Start this weekend! The biscuit joiner will reward you with great furniture--minus all the fuss.
