In case you're looking for something to do this New Year's day, Season 2010-2011 of the Woodwright's Shop is online.

One point of interest is the undercutting of the inside shoulder of the tenon—saves time and ensures that the outside shoulder is tight against the mating piece.
Enjoy the episodes. Happy New Year!
