Post: RE: How many figure-8 clips for this table?

I prefer buttons over figure 8's. I use my biscuit jointer to make the slots. If I remember to, I use a mortiser before assembly.

The last I bought was the same way. Upon closer inspection, it was obvious the A side was the lighter side. If yours isn't like that, I would use the lighter side to the inside.
