Thanks to a coment from sras who said For the angled joint, I’d suggest cutting the tenon at an angle and have the mortise be strgaight in.

I’ve made a drawing of the angled Tenon with my measurements, in centimeters.

This gives me the easy task of making the mortise of 2 cm deep by 2cm wide by 20 cm long in the seat, all straight angles.

Then in both of the legs I will have to make a angled keyed mortise and tenon joint to insert the legs support as shown in the sketch.

Looking good – happy to help!

(But – apparently I can’t spell “Straight”) :)

Interesting. I do angled mortises, but I also do round (or octagonal) legs and round tenons, so making a mortise means “drilling a hole,” which is a lot easier to do on an angle.

Hi Dave, yes but in this case its a 20 cm long (about 8 inches). I think its the best way, I´ll have a 2nd chance to do it again if this goes wrong.

Oh definitely stick to your plan, Diego. It’s just interesting how different approaches work.
