This is a cherry bench from fww. I used primarily hand tools except for the milling and arch which I cut on a bandsaw.

Has anyone else had this problem uploading photos from an iPad?

All my pics are from an iPad. Pulling them straight in sometimes turns them 90 degrees, but I’ve not hit ‘upside down.’ The most consistent way to get it done is through photobucket, though. Sized right, stored elsewhere, and uploads direct from the pad’s (or iphone’s) camera. Download the app and play with it, it’s pretty handy.
I copied your pic and did an edit to rotate (in camera roll, not PB):

That looks great. Are the through tenons guaged from the end or the board or do you carry the marks around with a square? Specifically, I’ve always wonder how people get the holes to line up perfectly on both sides of a wide board like this. Thanks.

I thought it looked great upside down! Now it really looks good!

Bonobo- I used a marking gauge to mark from the ends and sides then chiseled the periphery out and then mortised out from the face side into the all ready cut dado

My neck hurts. But I can see the joinery is executed very nicely.
