Building furniture just got easier!

If you're like most woodworkers, you're always looking for ways to save time. One of the best tools to deliver on that promise is the biscuit joiner. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Biscuit joiners allow woodworkers to assemble their projects using tiny wooden biscuits, a fast and simple technique that even beginners can use to make strong wood joints. Stack, a professional cabinetmaker and editor at Popular Woodworking magazine, offers a number of attractive projects that feature biscuit joinery, including a media center, cabinets, a mirror, and a double lounge that converts into a bed. These plans are well written and are supplemented by excellent color photographs; the projects are within the abilities of most woodworkers. A bentwood clock and a free-form plant stand offer some rather innovative uses of a tool that is more typically used on a flat plane. The introduction (written by Christopher Schwartz and aptly titled "Biscuit Joiner Basics") offers a wealth of tips and ideas. This is an excellent book about an increasingly common tool. Recommended for all woodworking collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
