    Biscuit Thickness vs Biscuit Jointer Blade Kerf

    New Year giveaway

    Phil: Thanks for giving us all the chance to share in your generosity. I could use some mahogany crown or trim. I'm just interested in repurposing the wood for small projects- so I don't really need a specific amount or anything.
