  1. I found this little piece of wood and thought I'd whittle it into something. Is it oak?
  2. I watched a video on YouTube on how to make a mortise and tenon joint. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBodzmUGtdw) I have only the most basic tools and I only make some simple improvised stuff, and I'm wondering if I can't make a round mortise and tenon. So instead of making the hole with a chisel, just drill with a large bit (maybe 2 centimeter diameter even 1 inch), and then saw and whittle (with a knife) the tenon. The wood I have in mind has a square cross section. My question is, what is the drawback? Is it weaker? Should I just use dowels instead?
