I'm one of the weekenders I guess, although my weekends can be anytime 
since I retired a decade & change back up the log of life.

But to facilitate some precision in my woodworking for mortise & tenon 
joinery, I long ago made up an alu bar that I can bolt to the front of the 
head casting of my cnc'd (using LinuxCNC of course) micromill to mount a 
cheap die grinder far enough forward and offset to the left, and some jigs 
to mount the frame sticks in a vice-like setup, wrote a bit of gcode and 
carved both the tenon on the end of the stick, and its matching mortise.

My last such project, for the next door neighbor, was a set of benches 
with seat backs that double as storage for toys etc for all ages, only had 
172 such joints in it.  And no, not a pro, but just making the best use of 
the tools I have.  My interests are best described as eclectic I guess.  
Keeps me out of the bars, is I believe the usual excuse. :)

Point being, use the tool you are familiar with.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
