Biscuit Joint
Joints in wood and panel products similar to butt joints but made with oval lengths of a composite material (biscuits) in slots cut with purpose made power tool, a biscuit jointer.

The beauty of this type of joint is that unlike the dowel joint on the previous page, it is simplicity itself to set up. The tool is set just once and many panels can be jointed quickly with no need for precise measuremnts. The fact that the slots can be cut with extra length allowing the material sideways movement

I have more information of the joint and the machine that makes it here on my biscuit jointer page.
