I wanted some opinions on using biscuits in place of mortise and
tenons on a screen door I plan to make using 5/8" redwood. Would
double biscuits help? It is not meant to be "solid" and last forever
At 5/8" thickness, I'd use half-lap joints and some poly glue - like
Gorilla. You'll need all the corner strength you can get and although a
half-lap joint isn't woodworking elegance, it is one of the strongest joints
you can use in this situation.
Or drawpinned M&Ts.
Either would be magnitudes stronger than necessary. Would a bridle joint be
up to the job? It's what I'm using for silkscreen frames, which must
be durable yet quickly built. Simple task with a tenon jig.
