I agree with Rich. You don’t really need the drawbore pins. Drawboring was typically used in place of glue. I use both glue and pins, but approach the joint a bit differently … I mark the pin locations during a dry fit … offset the holes in the tenons … and use clamps to align the holes during glue-up. See my blog Hepplewhite Stand #8: Completed Legs and Drawbore Pins for photos.
