Joining Hardwood Panels
I found some 1/2” thick 4” x 96” hardwood panels that I wood like to use for wood paneling.
I am fairly new to Woodworking, but I have a good router and router table, also a R4512 table saw.
I know that tong and grove is an option, but the wood I am using (Macacauba) is hard and a bit brittle, so I am concerned that tong and grove might be difficult to cut without chipping or cracking the wood. Especially with someone with my experience level.
I am planning to join four 4” panels creating, roughly, a 16” paneled section (its part of a closet organizer project).
I was looking at some of the glue joints and the biscuit joints. HF has a biscuit tool that is fairly cheap; is it hard to use ? Are biscuits even an option for this ?
