cut and mark the angle cuts at the square ends of the spokes Step 2: Shape the square ends of the spokes

Draw a center line along the top of every spoke.
The tabletop and seat boards will join on those lines.

Using a T-bevel or pattern, mark the angles (for cutting) at the square cut ends of the spokes.
Each end will require two adjoining cuts forming a sort of an off-center point. One cut will be 30° off square and the adjoining cut will be 60° off square. The 30 degree cut can be made using a miter saw. The 60 degree angle will have to be cut with a handsaw, as miter saws will not do such a cut.

Refer to the drawing below for dimensions.

Note: Detail #1 is a mirror image of Detail #2.
In all, you will need to cut 4 spokes with the Detail #1 profile (two for the upper frame and two for the lower), and 4 spokes with the Detail #2 profile (also two for the upper frame and two for the lower frame).
