Thanks all for the feedback.

I had seen Marc’s video before, it’s actually what got me thinking about using the drawbore method.

I can envision all kinds of things going wrong with my attempt :) which is leading me to possibly just clamping the joints tight and pinning them with the dowels, rather than trying to offset the tenon bore. I’ve got high quality maple dowels, so I am not worried about breaking them, and my drill press will just get through the legs in one pass.

I guess I’m off to make some practice atempts in scrap… I’ve got too many hours into the project so far to screw it up now!
