Really cool look, I like it, very unique. 

So if I follow correctly, you cut your 8 degree taper before turning, then you turned, shaped and glued. Didn't see the flat glue surface in the pictures you took of the turned legs but I assume they are there. 

Very nice and I'm really enjoying the build.

It looks short or is that just illusion?

If you struggling for time i'd spare us the details on the dovetails and try and make it to your show. Like you said you've documented it here already in awesome detail.

The jig using the two Incra miter gauges is an interesting approach.  Is that your design Or did you see it used somewhere else?

Derek, when you get the finish on that, those drawer fronts are going to dazzle.  Beautuiful work as usual.

The answer is yes! I expect your heirloom pieces will be around for hundreds of years due to the exceptional quality. With that amount of time you would think a woodworker would be drawn to the piece.  . And ask permission to open the drawers too. Derek, if and when you see a beautiful relic, don't you want to examine it? And they would notice the exceptional efforts including the sequential drawer bottoms. And also there will be eyes looking right at it and seeing nothing. So is the world...But we know...

Not one to question but I will. Why not a 1/4” groove for the bottom?

Hopefully at the show, but once you get it back home your wife will cover the drawer bottoms with all of her "needlework thingies". :D
