Hey Guys,

I did a quick little deep dive into the ins and outs of common butt joint techniques. I looked at biscuits, Mortise and Tenons (both hand cut and machine cut) Festool Domino Floating Tenons, and the Kreg Jig. I broke down how long it takes to make these joints, how consistent they come out, how easy and repeatable they are, and how strong each joint is. I break down (with lots of data) how much they cost in both money and time invested into each joint from the perspective of a Hobbyist, making 1 piece of furniture (8 joints) vs. a professional making a bunch of furniture (100 joints) to see how the time savings add up.

I hope you get something out of it, I know I learned a lot putting it together.
