Nice video! Good amount of detail, just enough to keep it interesting without bogging down.

Jason,

Great vid man! Question for you... how did you cut the biscuit inserts and how precise do the biscuits have to line up with the inserts?

So you do have to cut the holes for the biscuits yourself?

Great job Jason. I love your articles, this video makes it seem so much easier. +1 on the question about cutting holes for the biscuits. Is there an easy way to make sure the holes from one panel line up exactly to the other panel? I know for a fact I would screw up on this part haha!

What are your thoughts on pocket holes with the jig as opposed to biscuits? I was thinking of doing pocket holes on a next build because it seems very easy to use...

Those are very nice but i suspect you would need to use regular wood for a solid joint. That would be costly, especially if you were to just cover it with laminate. I think biscuits are one of the best ways to join plywood.

And yes, it is just that easy to use a biscuit joiner

Ah yes, didn't even think about the plywood issue. I'm sure drilling into the sides of it wouldn't hold up very well. I'm gonna have to look into a biscuit joiner and give it a test run
