Default sliding dovetail

I would like to fix a small table we have it is about 18" high and 12 round. It has a turned spindle and three legs attached by dove tails. The bottom legs broke when someone fell on it. I have been able to turn a new bottom piece and put the dovetails slots in it. But how can I cut the dovetails for the legs so they conform to round of the spindle?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Seems to me that Norm of New Yankee Workshop did one of those not too long ago. (I can't really remember the episode or when as all I get are re-runs here.... With my memory, there is no such thing as re-runs in my little world)

Might check there and see what he did.

You would need to use a router and a jig for this job.
