I’ve used splines, biscuits and lock mitres. They all work. Lock miters have a spline built in and are really meant for long grain thus they’re perfect for making strong legs. Buy a high quality bit, you won’t be disappointed. Work up some test pieces and once you have the settings MAKE A SETUP GAUGE out of your test pieces. This will make it a cinch to setup the next time. And if you have more money than time, you can buy setup gauges for the lock miter bit here…

Good luck.
