Beautiful job. Really like the tenons and pegs, and gentle arch on the sides. Nice quartersawn oak too.

Looks solid, and I like the shape of your tenon keys. The color is great, you have to share some finishing secrets.

I use Jeff Jewetts Stickley finishing method from Homestead Finishing .. This came out a little darker than intended due to my dye had evaporated since I mixed it over 2 yrs ago .. 2 Quarts of dye go along way..
