The biscuits are ready!

My good friend is a professional pastry chef, and is working toward opening a brunch-type restaurant. She has been conducting pop-up events for the past several months, and has enjoyed tremendous success so far.

I thought I would surprise her with a fun sign she can hang up at her events.

Backboard is from Michaels, and is approximately 10”x10”.
All acrylic is Proofgrade, and is a combination of medium red and white, plus thick clear.

Assembly was completed with Weld-on 16 acrylic solvent cement.

If you live in The DFW area, be sure to check her out on Facebook.

You obviously have the nack for working with acrylic!

I must say though… I’m a little disappointed in the title…I fully expected to see lasered biscuits! :rofl:

That’s the tricky part, for sure. Different materials - even different colors of the same thickness acrylic - seem to have different Kerfs. I did some trial cuts (1”x1”) then measured the size of the cut out, and subtracted that from the size of the resulting hole, then divided by 2 to get the Kerf value.

For the most part, all pieces ‘snapped’ together. I brushed Weld-on 16 on the back to ensure nothing would fall out.

When I was trying inlays like this, I found that the side of the kerf were slanted, which made seamless edges challenging. Yours seams look great - did you do anything to compensate for this?
