    Would using a drawbore to attach the legs to the rail be a reasonable thing to do? I don’t have a lot of faith in my clamps and I was hoping this would help.

    I certainly can’t see any reason it shouldn’t work. Just realize that it would be a permanent joint. That won’t come apart for moving day.!

    Great! I’m new to this whole woodworking thing so having some confirmation is much appreciated. These are the first mortise and tenons I’ve cut and they are a little sloppy, so I’m hoping the drawboring helps the joints to seat a little better.

    yes draw bore pins work very well, I really like them, they are really useful in all sorts of applications, and they look good as well, sometimes a piece of furniture looks better with them than without.
