Good job, Michael. Nice and sturdy. I love drawbored tenons. How much of an offset did you have in the tenon hole?

Interesting method this drawbored tenon. Looked it up and will have to try it sometime. You got experience using this method on a practical project, good idea and it turned out very nice. This is 4×4 construction using redwood, how heavy are these things?

Ron, I tried to have about 1/16", but the bad one must have been a bit more than that.
Woodbutcher, they are very light actually. Redwood is soft (the reason I chose it for my first try chopping a mortise) and light weight.

Well if these are your first you have a good in hand tool woodworking. The joinery looks first class. Well done.

Interesting, you look and see 4×4 size and just figure = heavy duty. I mean they look like something you mount a 3 inch butcher block table to and move it with 6 guys from work. LOL

I also fabricated a workbench using draw bore tenons. I later regretted not taking more pictures to share during the process. It produces a crazy solid joint. Rewarding isn't it.
