Ok, back to the hand tool world. The top and bottom pieces of each leg assembly were cut from 12/4 cherry we had left over from an architectural job at work. Mortises were drilled out with a bit and brace, and finished up with chisel & mallet. Tenons on center legs were tuned up with a shoulder plane & No 65.

So thats where the build stands for now. I'll update the thread with more (hopefully successful) pics of the stretcher tusk tenon process. Thanks for looking!
