First time biscuit jointing - advice please
I've made a couple of acoustic guitars as well as some pub benches so I'm not a complete newbie, but I've never used a biscuit jointer. I have 5 iroko boards, 1000 x 100 x 30mm and I want to make a larger board of 1000 x 500 x 30mm so I can then cut a shaped thwart (boat seat). Hardwood biscuit jointing with epoxy edge gluing (and lots of sash cramps + weights!) would seem like the answer, but given my dimensions, can I get some guidance on what size biscuits, what spacing and a single or double layer of biscuits? Thanks in advance.
