I notice the Wood magazine article compares each of these joints to a “true” mortise and tenon of 1”. It seems they should have made the M&T the same size as the others to be more comparable. But, it was still the strongest of the joints tested.

All of the joints, except the biscuits, broke the wood before the glue joint failed. The biscuits broke before that would happen. A good commentary on the use of the joints was to use what suits you best.
