Got a hour of shop time today as the little colt and mom got to go outside today...
My router table seemed to be the best bet to start the tenons.
I clamped a couple of blocks behind the fence at the final depth needed for the tenons.

With a support under the leg I did three passes on each depth to get the 1 3/4" tenon started.
The amount that had to be taken off was 1/2" so that was done in two stages.
Total of 12 passes on each leg to get me started.

Now to make the final tenons.
Hand saw to do the vertical cuts and the shoulders. Quick clean up now with a sharp chisel.

My bandsaw was then used to cut most of the waste out on the other two chunks that had to come off each leg.
To make things a little easier to finish I put a bit in my router table with a bearing on top and was able to clean up everything except the corners.
This was gingerly done as I really didn't want to have a slip and chew into the tenon.
A chisel will finish the job.

One more to go and we will see how the caps fit....
