There's a crack though

Wrote my previous message before watching the video to the end.

If you set a pause at 21:27 (https://youtu.be/8pASdFYNPIk?t=1287) -- there's a crack right about where the leg is glued. So while the whole body is dovetailed, that short piece of a post glued cross-grain was enough for a panel to crack.

There's also a vertical crack in the front vertical batten, also somewhere close to the area where it's glued to a side panel.

So maybe they weren't so concerned about wood movement after all.
