Biscuits but clamping would be tricky.

Think I would go for biscuits too but it's going to be tricky without a good jig for lining up the bevel ones.

For assembly I sometimes super glue components in two or three places so they hold in place while I assemble an item. I still use other wood glue as well on the joint, it is just that the super glue holds the component in place while the wood glue setts so I don't need clamps so much. I think you could part glue and fit some of the lower section of the unit so it is held in place before assembly of the entire unit but it's going to be slightly tricky nevertheless. It will be a good learning curve.

This is when the Zeta p2 pays for itself!

Looks very interesting. Too costly for a one off but could pay for itself if the project was large enough.

Good heads up David! I would have never have known it existed if you had not posted about it here.

Biscuits will be the way to go ! Thanks guys for the suggestions. I will make some test joints with the cheap biscuit jointer I have,if it will not work I will upgrade it to makita/dewalt one.

Danielcio, I have the Makita biscuit jointer and it's really good. Bit noisy but works great and very accurate.
