You can do all of it by hand, that’s how it was done back in the day, but you may not want to try that unless you really find that interesting and fun. If you have the tablesaw and router you can do mortise and tenon, dadoes, dovetails, and lots of other kinds of joinery with them. You need some jigs, but it can be done.

Paul Sellers blog and youtube videos and the Woodwright’s shop on PBS are good suggestions if you want an idea of the tools it takes to do basic joinery by hand.
