cut the legs and made tenons on the ends, this is before i made the shoulders but cut the cheeks

First time I made through mortises I had to make them by hand due to lack of tools and they looked like they fit which was crap lol luckily I read an article earlier bout glues and went and got some structural epoxy which is supposesed to gap filling I used it and two pegs per joint And as far as I know the table is still together or the customer lost my number
