those are darn good looking storm windows.

Biscuits have very little shear strength. After all, they're basically a thick piece of beechwood cardboard. They're good for aligning joints but I also like them for their holding strength. There's more glue surface area with a biscuit than with even a couple of dowels so laminations hold tighter.
The Festool is a cool tool. It's just way, way overpriced (like all of their power tools. I mean, really, $260 for an orbital sander?!)
