HI GWH

Just do it the same way Norm A. did it..

OR

Here's just one more way of doing the job T & G joints no biscuits needed or clamps...slot is only 1/4" deep...and it's all the way around the frame..

I see now where a lot of guys just use a slotting bit the size of the biscuit and make a continous groove in the plywood and then use the bisciut joiner on the face frame and it's easy to line up on the continuous groove.

Have you ever used only a biscuit cutter for both the face frames and the cabinet??

Hi GWH

Yes

I'm not a big fan of the biscuit way...they work great on the flats but not on a right angle joint..to me they are one step above a staple joint...

I have many types and sizes.....from the very small to the very big ones..

But that's just my 2 cents...
