My son is restoring a toy box I made for him 32 years ago. The box is plywood. The lid is 2 pieces of plywood butted together. I used a 1x2 along the length of the plywood butt joint on the inside of the lid to hold it together (remember, it was 32 yrs. ago and I was new to woodworking). He wants to remove the 1x2 and use biscuits & glue to butt the plywood together. I wondered how strong the joint will be by cutting into the plys of the plywood. I have used biscuits in hardwood to make a panel but never plywood. I suggested if he does it he may want to use Kreg pocket hole screws in addition to the biscuits. Your thoughts? Thanks, Craig
