Watch in awe (or amusement) as I try to make a table using real woodworking joinery. What I end up with is a reasonably nice small end table.

Ken, I think the word you’re wanting to use is “traditional” joinery, not “real”. Any method of joinery used is real, or else the table would fall apart. Newer methods of joinery, like the Kerg pocket hole method, are variations of what came before, mostley for ease of work.
Nice video, entertaining.
