To start out, make sure all your wood is PERFECTLY square and of uniform thickness.

Start by cutting a 22° angle on one end of a piece of wood the exact same dims as the stretcher (what you’re calling a spanner).

Clamp and scribe the inside of the mortise and transfer those lines around to the outside (this is why everything has to PERFECTLY square).

Hog out the bulk of the waste with a forstner bit from both sides. You can make a 22° sled which you can use on your drill press table.

Use that same piece of wood you used to scribe the mortise as a guide block for paring out the mortise.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
