There is a distinct difference between production and craft. And although I'm too practical to do all hand work mortise and tenon, I don't feel one bit of the grain of the wood using a router and table saw.

I did a video on using hand tool vs. fixtures and jigs to install an old mortise lockset. You can find it using the info below if you're interested. It was an early vid so the quality suffers from inexperience (which I still don't have much of ).
