Biscuits are compressed shavings that are stamped into an oval shape. Moisture from the glue surrounding the biscuit causes it to expand and form a tight joint. You can use biscuits on hard and soft wood, composition board, and plywood. Precision measurements are not necessary for this type of wood joinery. Cut crescent shaped slots into adjoining wood pieces and apply glue in the hole and clamp.

- Reusable clamshell stores biscuits and prevents swelling prior to use due to moisture
