Lamello Joiner

The Lamello joiner is a specialized tool designed for creating biscuit joints. Biscuit joints are a type of joinery that use a thin, oval-shaped piece of wood (known as a biscuit) to join two pieces of wood together. The Lamello joiner uses a blade to cut a slot in the wood, into which the biscuit is inserted, and then glued in place. One of the bonuses of the Wood Biscuit is even if you can't afford the price that comes with these high quality joiners yet, the Biscuits are compatible with some of the other more economical options.   

In addition to the standard biscuit joint, Lamello also offers a range of specialized connectors that are designed for a wide option of applications. These connectors include the Bisco plastic biscuit, Tenso Snap Connector and the Clamex tool activated connection.
