Topic tags/keywords: timber joinery 4x4 angled joinery joining question timber frame

I am building mochastatin’s lathe stand. I am trying to assemble the feet to the stand, but I just cannot figure out the joinery for the 30 degree angle of the pieces that make up the feet. I would like to use a bridle joint, but cannot figure how to lay it out. For that matter, I struggle to lay out a stub tenon as a substitute. I would appreciate some guidance, please.

I’m no expert but I’d probably just put glue on the joining surfaces and put long a screw through them both at an angle. Or you could do the same concept, just replace the screw with a dowel.

Similar to what Jimothy said, I’m a hacker, but depend on technology to fake my woodworking prowess. I can only suggest a ”Fe$tool Domino” for ease… ease of saying and making… not ease of paying.
