After my 8 minute dovetail on YouTube I thought you might like the 10 minute mortise and tenon in oak.

I also have a couple more to go up on YouTube so watch for them. One is the roundover to the lid and bottom. Short, three minutes for this one using only a standard no-frills smoothing plane.

 

 

The second video is another dovetailer I promised and has four dovetails cut by sight. Here are some pictures of what I mean.
