Oh thanks Rick I like that table. That s pretty close to what I had in mind, except with stretchers. I bet the one in the picture has legs attached with hangar bolts into the end of the leg, so idk if it d be any stronger than a tapered 7/8 tenon?

It might. The only splayed leg mcm table plan I could find had the legs screwed on through the battens but the main advantage of using compound angle battens is to make the leg mortise & tenon easier. If it were me I would angle the battens and use a drill guide block to make the mortises with a hand drill.
