    Thanks for taking the time.

  5. Now before we use any power tools let’s take a minute to talk about shop
    safety. Always be sure to read and understand the manuals that come with
    your tools and don’t forget the most important rule–to ALWAYS WEAR THESE,

  8. say prouder one more time….I dare you!

    this is the only good expert village vid I have seen so far, also, for all
    you morons that think he was at risk of cutting his thumb off, the blade is
    a good 1/4 inch under his thumb, and not sticking out in the air, that was
    perfectly safe, and anyone who thinks he was going to lose his thumb doing
    that, has clearly never used a biscuit joiner

  10. Best tool vids on Expert Village

  11. Simple, straightforward & logical demonstration, Thanks

  12. hmmm. I still prefer jointing with nails. What is the advantage of the
    biscuit joint over other methods? Because you still need to router the ends
    to get them flush and even.

  13. the sand paper trick is good to know however i wouldn’t advise using
    sandpaper against your joiners shoe or the cast iron tabletop. it can sand
    away the squareness of your joiners shoe & scratch & mar your cast iron
    table top.

  14. Very helpfull thanks Kevin

  15. If I remember correctly, you can have a look at Hyezmar’s design in his
    Woodworking Bible (google it), I think you can get a great alternative for
    this project.
