It seems the mock up was worth the effort, my 4 yr old has been playing with it ever since, looks like I will have to get into making timber puzzles.

take a 1 X 1" stick and lay it around each leg and scribe a line on all 4 sides. This will give you a plane at the proper angle to make the legs parallel to the horizontal. There are 2 ways to makes things like this....just do it ... and just calculate it. I'm lousy at math, so that's why I suggested the approach above.
The legs in this picture are 1 1/2 " X 1 1/2" exactly... I do use a jointer and I totally agree about flat and straight. And the angle in this picture top and bottom are both on a 45° compound... I'm going to play with the mock up more when I have time. If you got any new ideas they are more than welcome I appreciate you even taking look at this thread

Try a 40° 40° compound, I think it will be closer. I think you may find 39° 41° might be closer but you have to get it the right way round

BTW I think you have went a little farther than the original picture.your trying to make everythingrunthrough an exact center, whereas the original pic is offset just a bit like your sketch up. All good but I noticed that yesterday and I also noticed that your pieces are dadoed different than your sketch. All appreciated just didn't want to lose where we were going with the joint

Because it is off set is why I say your compound would be 2 slightly different angles. I did not do the sketch up, there were 2 of us replying.

EDIT: okay, so here's the gist of the joint. After observation, there are of course three pieces.

Looks pretty complex, right?
The Yellow Block has No Dados in it.
The Red block has one Dado in it.
The Blue Block has two Dados in it.

You can see them better moved apart in this picture

Now that blue block is the complex one, and right now it just looks like a bunch of lines, so I put it at a better angle so you can see that it is one dado halfway through the piece, just like the Red Block, but it has another dado running perpendicular to the other dado, exact same dimensions, only offset One Half the thickness of whatever the blocks are.

It should be noted that all the dados are the width of the blocks, and they are 1/2 as deep as the width of the blocks. Also, the legs of the table are put at 45 Degree compound miter angles. (45 degrees on the X and Y axis) Same with the top.

When you make all these cuts, you should focus on the joint in the center with the dados, and give yourself some room to figure out the dimensions when you make the angled cuts on the bottom and top.

I did not dimension them because that is for you to do. I cannot dimension a table without knowing the proper scales and any other information about the table. All I did was Digest the joint so you know what to do.
thank you for the sketch up bud it helped outhuge
