An angled mortise (never successfully completed one myself) is one of the tougher things to do by hand. Drilling on an angle by tilting the DP table or using a wedge to achieve the angle is one approach. Another option is to cut the leg in half (or start with 2 boards) and cut angled slots on the edge of the board either on your table/band saw or by hand and then (re-) join the halves of the legs. This may be the easiest approach but the size and design of the legs may make that impractical and the joint may be noticeable, if that matters.
