AW Extra 5/10/12 – Miter Plunging Biscuit Joiner

Miter Plunging Biscuit Joiner

My biscuit joiner fence does not rotate
to 135 degrees, and that is one of my
most-often-made joints. To help hold
the joiner steady, I add a second
mitered piece of wood to the other
side of the joint, forming a right angle.
By increasing the surface for the joiner
fence to rest on, the plunge is more
stable.
