8" shelf boards. They are mitred to 30 deg. angle. I'll be using biscuits, and it'll be on top of a table, so I want it to be as neat as possible. Cut both ends with a power table saw. When I place the edges together, it looks pretty good.
Question is: Do I need to give these edges any further attention before gluing? Very light, fine sanding? Or best leave well enough alone?

Sorry for the terminology mix up. I'm pretty new at this.

"Gluing ends doesn't work that great biscuits will help. "

I'm a little confused about what you're saying here. Biscuits will help, or
won't?

I seems to me that an inset such as a dowel or biscuit would keep things straight and turn out strong, but I have admittedly never done a biscuit before.

The lap joint sounds llike a good idea. I'll take a look at the Festool.

I'll post a picture in a bit to make sure I am not mis-describing it. It's not a dining table, just one part of a crazy concoction to hold books and CDs. So I want it be somewhat solid looking as opposed to fancy-dancy. The wood I have is hickory.
