Biscuit joinery drawing suggestions?


Any technique suggestions for drawing biscuit slots in joinery? Miter joints and butt joints…


Hi Chuck,

Butt joints are easy. Just place the two components next to each other.

Miter joints: It depends upon what the profile is on the parts you’re mitering. If more complex than simple rectangular sections, use a cutting plane to cut at the miter angle.

When I need to draw biscuit slots, I use a component the shape of the slot, place it into the component getting the slot and explode it. Here’s a little more on that.
