Beautiful table. I admire your hand cut mortises. When I don’t use a jig and router, mine look like they were chopped by a chimp with a hangover… My first woodworking project was for my first grandchild’s cradle. The side rails had a total of 60 mortises. After that, I made a jig to take a square spindle and turn a round tenon on each end that fit the 3/8” hole I drilled with my drill press. It was a lot easier to round a square peg than it was to square up a round hole. LOL The first set of side rails I made took two days, the last one I built took less than two hours to make the rails.

Very handsome table. I really like the lines of shaker and modern slim lined designs.

Other than labor, through mortises are easier than you would think, my approach is to make the blank oversized by a 1/16 or so, and hand plane any chip out once the mortise has been cut. Plus work form either side toward the middle helps too. Just make sure you reference your mortising gauge on the same side so the joint is 90 degrees all around.
