In woodworking, there are many joints from which to choose, but the wood biscuit joint is definitely the most popular method, often noted for its strength and accuracy.
A wood biscuit is fitted into a slot usually created with a biscuit jointer machine or using a slotting cutter on a router. When the biscuit comes into contact with water based glue it swells thus creating a 'locked' joint. Wood Biscuits work well on T-joints, miter joints, corner joints and edge-to-edge joints.
Dimar’s line of wood biscuits is renowned in the woodworking industry for their quality and craftsmanship. Each Dimar joiner biscuit is made from high quality, European made Beechwood.
