Roughing out the stretcher details...

The stretcher or cross member is essential to hold the two trestle legs securely. Using a jigsaw and belt sander I thinned the center producing a gentle curve. Looking at it now it could be thinned further at each end. 

The through tenons are secured using a solid ebony 'key'. At present they are functional but also need some detailing work with the rasp. 

Overall... average.
