Hi, I am trying to make a table top with pine. My plan was to make it out of oak but was having trouble cutting the oak to the right thickness. That problem has been solved but during that process I decided to make a top out of pine. Kinda as a temporary top, (I want this table ready for Christmas). So I used my biscuit joiner and glue. I am always so careful every time I use that darn tool. But every time I join the edges, they are off just slightly and require a lot of sanding. I simply cannot understand what the problem is. When I cut the biscuit I am super careful to keep everything lined up and level. This has been an issue for years. But before I get ready to join the oak, I need to figure out what I am doing wrong.
