The four legs are connected by 7 stretchers; 2 on the short sides, 2 at the front, 1 at the back.
I had been waiting for a new Chris Vesper Square before cutting the joinery. However, this week I received news that the square I expected for Christmas, will be arriving closer to July. So I decided to just use my old trusty $3 square. The results were actually quite good.
I made the tenons using a circ saw and guide. Not a romantic hand tool technique but it works.
Then cleaned up with a chisel and rasp.
