I use it when I don't know sometimes and then even when I do know, just leavin' the door open. I don't have a "self appointed expert" user name, to lend authority to my opinions, so I take the more humble approach. I could be wrong, but that seems to work for me, I donno?

You've made your opinion well known, but it's a method that is widely used by many here are in the field. The Kreg folks have made several million $$$ making the devices, and others have copied them as well. If the "old school" guys like yourself don't like/hate them, that's fine with me. I've used them and have shown my examples and methods for those who would like to try them. I don't see why we can't have different opinions about them, this is what a forum is all about... but I could be wrong again, I donno?

I rest my case for for the use of biscuit joinery in certain applications. Do as you choose. Best of luck, bill
News flash of the can have your own opinion. Use what you want. I'm just wondering why you need to "get to me". Do you have any more suggestions on edge jointing for Bluefilosoff?

see post 15

Even though I have several jointers, the board straightening jig is the best method I have used. It's fast accurate and can be used repeatedly.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Modern glue is amazing stuff.

ps, biscuits do nothing for "alignment" no matter what anyone says.

You issue will be face jointing. You will need to face joint one side before thickness planing. If the reclaimed lumber is stable and very flat (not unusual for reclaimed) and you are trying to keep the rough look of the wood you can finagle it and skip the face jointing but you will need to use cauls during the glue-up.

If you are keeping the rough look of the lumber it's a good idea to joint only the glue edges so that the rough continues around the edges.
LOL. Glue is going to hold up like biscuits ? Maybe if'n themma thar bizzkitz cumma frum Hardees.

I saw a great YouTube video on how to do this by Izzy Swan:

Jointing instructions start at 6:42

It is easy, I've used it, and it works.
