I don’t see any reason why not. The only issue would be how close the tenons are to each other in the leg. In other words, don’t drill right next to your side rail tenon for the DB pins for the stretcher and visa-versa.

As with any new joinery technique, make a practice piece, or three. Best to find trouble that way, such as does the wood tend to split, how much of an offset in the holes is too much or too little. That type of thing.

Oh, and no need to YELL.

If it’s your first draw bore joint do a practice one first.They are always different with each wood size etc.Also rive your pegs from oak or hickory.So they don’t break before you get them thru all the way.
That’s all I got good luck sound like a fun build.
