    This is how you make something simple of what would seem to be hard. Remembers me about Hyezmar’s woodworking plan which can be found online, have a good one!

    At 1 min.  Horrible choice to use biscuit joiner.  If you want a quick and dirty way to do that attachment use pocket screws every two inches with glue.  Better yet would be a redesign running that last piece several inches up into the case.  Make it part of the lower stretcher.  Then it would be part of the case structure.  That is just not the best use of use biscuits.  At just before 4 mins he is going to use biscuits to support a shelf???  I would advise against this.  Only one of several much better ways would be a dado made with a dado blade on the saw or with a guided router.  Yes you can use biscuits to do what he is doing but these applications are very poor uses of the biscuit joiner.  I have one, use it and love it.  Its a great tool, these uses are just not good examples.  Go elsewhere for advice on the biscuit joiner.

    How do you make the actual biscuits or it this something purchased?  Sorry for basic question…Thanks…

    in the second part "bottom up"… the best method is to just use the shelf to register off. That way you can mark both pieces at once and you won't accidentally register off the wrong face.  It also keeps it square.

    I'm confused about the shelf portion ("T" joint), did you flip the shelf after measuring or after cutting?  it seems the "bottom" of the shelf was attached to the "top" of the support. I'm thinking if the biscuits weren't equidistant from each edge of the support, it wouldn't fit, or wouldn't register correctly to the registration line?

    I have no idea why this guy ever gets thumbs down for any of his videos. He is easily one of the best out of the whole youtube community for woodworking tips. Great job!

    Biscuit joinery is new to me so please forgive what is probably a dumb question.  I'm curious as to why a biscuit joint would be preferable in the case of the attachment of the shelf, as opposed to a dado joint?  Wouldn't a dado joint provide greater strength in an application such as attaching a shelf, where strength is important?

    Found your video while trying to find a way to repair some MDF wood. This is exactly what I needed! Thank you so much. Now I just need to find a way to join with without having to clam as I do not have a 6 ft clam. 🙂

    I used the same biscuit joiner to add material onto the long side of a 7 foot board. The machine was so easy to use that I only had to make a few practice cuts figuring out how to set the machine to use the different sized biscuits. Also you can remove some of that lateral play by adjusting the fine tuning silver knobs on the side of the machine.

    Instead of using the cleat, use the shelf as the cleat, lay the bottom of the shelf against the line on the upright as you did the cleat, clamp them, then cut them both, the upright then turn the machine to do the shelf end as you did but without worrying about getting them the wrong way up,then just stand the shelf up.

    A good job of demonstrating the biscuit joiner, however you should have turned the shelf upside down after you marked for location. If the layout had been asymmetrical the shelf would not have lined up.

    It is really nice video. I am retired scientist but am carpenter by birth. I love carpentry. I noticed that your left hand little figure is injured or what? It looks bit bent inward. Thanks. Dr, Panchal
