I wouldn’t recommend cutting such a joint with machines unless
you have a multi-router or similar machine. The tricky part is the
tenon shoulders. For just a one-off piece, I’d cut the joints by
hand personally. It’s not really that hard.

A loose tenon would be plenty strong two, as suggested, but
making the hole at 4 degrees is a complication as well without
a multi-router type jig, Leigh FMT type jig slot mortiser with a
tilting table.
