Been right where you are at before. Generally, I have found that using aprons (3-5 in wide) and cut the ends with a 5,6,or 7 degree miter is among the best and easiest solution. Attach the aprons to the legs by using mortise and tenon joints or use pocket screws. Because the angles are relatively small you don’t have to use compound miter cuts. Below is a maple table using pinned mortise and tenon joints. These aprons were cut at 7 degrees. Hope this helps you out. Send me a message if you would like additional information.
