Beautiful work, Derek.  A lifetime of learning and skill distilled into an excellent build along.  Thanks very much.  

I have a client who has a piece very similar to that. Not nearly as well made, however.

Cool  project.

I always observed the older furniture (the tenons to legs), the tenon ends were curved/angled to match the rounded legs, instead of flattening the leg.
Is there any advantage  in doing it your way? Quicker....etc?

It depends on the thickness/diameter of the leg. With thick stock, as here, it is advantageous to flatten the face of the mortice as this is easier.

With thin legs, as with this chair, I coped the tenon to match the mortice ...

Ok thanks. Just wondering there. I usually always angle the tenon to match the leg, just the way I was taught. Makes a better fit, hides the joint somewhat. I don't remember ever seeing a leg flattened that way.

The legs in these examples are round. The shoulders of a tenon are square. Square peg into a round ... well, not hole, but you get the drift. Smile

Angling the tenon is a given. It is what you do with the shoulders.

Here is a link to an article by Garrett Hack, but his tapered legs are square:  https://www.finewoodworking.com/fwnpdffr...-table.pdf
