A T-bevel helps duplicate other angles. Also called a plate joiner, a biscuit joiner slices slots in the edges or faces of mating boards. The slots and fitted biscuits are glued and clamped together, producing an invisible and very strong joint. Because biscuits are fairly wide, you can use them only for boards 3 in. or wider. Pocket-hole jigs Pocket-hole joinery (see pp. 64–65) has become very popular among woodworkers because it produces strong joints quickly.
