OK, poor choice of words..... get the stuff in the shop put away so it appears more clean, and so that I'll have room to work!!!

Doors And Drawers

If you're looking for a "middle ground" between full-on mortise & tenon and simple slab doors I'd suggest simple tongue & groove with plywood panels. Assuming you have a router or tablesaw it's one of the easiest and best looking (my opinion) for a simple yet elegant door using solid stock for the rails and stiles. Aim at 1/3 the thickness of your stock for the width of the grooves/tenons. As you cut the grooves just keep reversing the lumber against the fence to keep the grooves centered.
Have a look here:

I'd reccomend anyone building furniture or wanting to to subscribe to Fine Woodworking magazine. (or seek it out at your local library)

Good luck!

I believe that there are lots of people using pocket hole joinery. Where I teach I have kids use biscuit joinery, pocket holes, dowels, as well as more traditional joinery techniques. They each have there place.
