Chest, Frame and Panel Hope

I used to struggle with mortise and tenon joinery. I tried every new system that came along, but they all seemed way too complicated. One day a friend of a friend walked into my shop, said Throw away those fancy jigs! and showed me an elegant way to make these classic joints. This blanket chest is the ideal project to showcase this technique.
