When you were marking out for the dovetails, how did you account for the double taper? Did you cut a small rabbet on the inside to aid the alignment? It looks, from the last picture, that you divided the board vertically, carried those markings to the edge to mark the smaller gap between the tails, and then used a standard template to mark the angles (but it may be that optical illusion thing kicking in). Lovely looking box.
Forgive the technical question before the praise, I’m an engineer by trade 🙂
