    Default Biscuit joint or Craig Jig?

    I have to join several pieces of mahogany to make a bench seat in my wooden boat. I’m replacing the old seats and doing away with the white caulk joints. I don’t have a biscuit joiner but not against buying one if that is the best joinery. Craig jigs are cheap in comparison and seen them used as well. What’s the experts thoughts? 3/4 and 1/2” thick boards once I plain them down.

    Festool like Joey said or I could let you borrow a Porter Cable biscuit jointer for some rod holder inserts. Dampen the edges and use a Gorilla Polyurethane glue. Pro-tip wear rubber gloves when you mess with it. Scrape off foam and excess after it dries, do not attempt to wipe it off. Makes for a very strong waterproof joint.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    Biscuit,glue, pony clamp. If you have a wide enough planer I would run them through after you've glued them together. You'll save yourself a lot of time with a belt sander

    Send the wood and desired measurements to SimpleMan then just sit back and wait. Seriously.

    I would love to pay someone to do it but everyone I know is super busy like myself.
