They aren’t so awfully difficult to make by
hand. You can chain drill them and then
use a chisel. You can just use a chisel. Paul
Sellers has a video showing an efficient method
for cutting them with a regular bevel edge
chisel. I was really surprised how fast he
did it.

Mortisers do make quick work of mortising but
they consume floor space. I like the horizontal
slot mortisers because you can mortise into
end grain with them for loose tenons which is
generally an easier method of work than cutting
tenons perfectly.
