Step 1: Cut the Pieces

To splay the legs, chop their ends at parallel 5-degree angles according to the cut list. Trim the ends of all the horizontal pieces at opposing angles to fit between the legs, and bevel their top edges so that they end up flat. Using a jigsaw, cut a curve on the six lower horizontal pieces. Cut the tabletop to size and bevel its edges.
