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..

Absolutely gorgeous, I love the massiveness and the tusk tenons
