Been a while - got some woodworking done - drawbored tenons

Ash w/ cherry top.  Cherry pegs for the tenons.  Left the bottom tenons w/o pegs.  There is a piece joining the front and back aprons that is also pegged.

Well done! What do you plan for the finish?

I like it.  What finish did you use?  Dimensions?

Offset for the bores was a fat 1/32" - or whatever the thickness of a piece of 120 grit sandpaper happens to be Smiley Wink.

 

That's what I used for the spacer.
