You can glue them, nail them or leave them

Those diagonal legs are kind of an advanced
joinery thing, aside from the braces. Cutting
slots with a biscuit joiner and then widening
the slots so you can slip the splines in from
above is one way to put it together. You’d need
cauls of some sort to clamp the joints tight.

If you have a biscuit jointer or Domino machine
there’s another way I can think of to put it
together as well. Glue up one set of legs
with the brace, then glue a third leg on with
the aprons and the other brace glued to it.
After that, glue the fourth leg on with the other
two aprons.

It can be done with a doweling jig that will
do 45 degree angles too, or a Shopsmith.
