George Vondriska teaches you a neat little trick for creating tighter biscuit joints on your shelving.

This will allow the glue to dry uniformly and seamlessly across the entire edge of the shelf.

    I have found that the king and the 3 cards provide better spacing than the queen and 4. Ah, such a joker.
