Thanks everyone. The rail came apart pretty easily. The other tenon was fine, but I have not yet “bitten the bullet” to check the rest. I think the easiest way of checking them is to use a Japanese saw and just cut all 16 tenons out (ouch) then clean the mortises and rebuild.

This was my first time using floating tenons and I frankly didn’t think about the grain – makes perfect sense, of course, just like in nature. I’ll post a pic when completed, and appreciate the kind offers of help as always.
