    I was Belgium, we usually use a type of biscuit joiner which is called a Lamello (that’s a brand name, in particular model Zeta P2) with their particular types of slide-in “lamellos” to join sides to tops and bottoms, or slides to fit shelves over,...a click system, with or without additional glue. Wondering if something similar is used in the US because so far I haven’t seen it used in any videos I’ve watched so far (was looking for demo video on correct setup of those things)?

    What are the model numbers for the Bosch drill and impact driver? I'm looking for a smaller set for the shop. Near as I can tell, it's this combo set:

    Hi, sorry for the newbie question, but what is the appropriate way to set up the all-in-one-countersink drill bit? For example, do you set the countersink so that the drill bit drills completely through the first piece of wood and about 1/4" into the mating piece?

    Because your fasteners are going into particle board, I would have recommended a different type of screw (deeper threads with a wider pitch), and one that was at least 3 times the thickness of the material or 2-1/4 inches long. It is a real speed saver to have separate cordless drill and driver tools though.

    HI, you had a few questions asked but as yet not answered. By the dates shown they must have been seen since one of your answers were on a much later date than the date of one of the unanswered question (May 3). Once they are answered will you please send me an email so I can view your answers?

    I know your way is faster but a few dados would make it a lot stronger and easier to assemble.

    I've been shopping for decent counter sink drill bits. What type and brand counter sink is George using in this video? Thanks in advance!

    I understand it is quicker but a few dados would make it a whole lot stronger and easier to assemble.

    This video on assembling a large carcase was interesting and informative. However, I was waiting in anticipation for the large CARCASS that the lead line of the video referred to. Did I miss it?
