I am planning to build a blanket chest out of red oak. I don't have a jointer, but understand that I can use my router for joining. The stuff I've seen on the internet is confusing. What's the easiest way to do this? Are there any demo videos out there?

Welcome...

I'm one of the least expert people on here but since you have not gotten an answer yet I will give my 1/2 cent worth.
I perfectly straight edge clamped to a board will allow you to route a perfectly straight edge.
Tada...

There are tons of videos on line. Don't know about joining videos but I'm sure there is somewhere. O well, in a few minutes an expert will answer your question.

If you use a router table with a straight fence, attach a strip of Formica to the outfeed side. Adjust the fence with a straight edge against the outfeed side and so the bit just kisses the straight edge.
If you use a straight board to guide the hand held router, clamp it to the under side of the piece to be jointed unless you use a top mounted bearing bit. Just insure that the guide is situated so you only remove a 1/8" or less.
