These are joinery biscuits for woodworking and I made a bunch from a piece of scrap wood.
Whenever you make something that you used to buy, it’s like making money.
Requires a 4″ hole saw and I just happen to have one. Took roughly 30 minutes to make nearly 50, but half of that time was building the simple fixture on my drillpress.
These are made from ash and the grain goes directly perpendicular to the joint for maximum strength. Store bought biscuits have the grain running on an angle. These are also slightly bigger and fill the mortise more precisely.
Of course you can make any size biscuit with the same hole saw and it would be a good idea to build a more refined fixture than the rough and ready one I slapped together in this video.
