: Joining boards
: Woody 14 June, 2006, 15:55
I was wondering what is the best way to join boards of wood together.   I am making a desk from reclaimed beech panelling.   I was told about biscuits and a friend can lend me the kit to do that.  But I was told that toungue and groove is better and I have another friend who would do that!   So I don't know what to do, but I don't want me desk to fall to bits.
Any help appreciated!

Both methods are suitable for joining boards. But
t and g will be visible from the end grain of the top,
if thats not a problem for you.

You could also consider dowelling , if the tool issue was a problem ,

Buscuits can also show on end grain if the boards have to be cut after gluing up. Be careful where you put them!
I saw Norm Abrahms on New Yankee Workshop simply run the boards on the jointer and glue straight away without using either!
