It takes a bit of thinking but "dealguy11" gives a real good explaination in the above messages.

Hi mezalick,

I know this is an old thread, but I wonder if you could tell me how to get the shoulder on the rectangle part of the leg?
Couldn't figure out how to PM you!

It is similar to the tapered Octagon, but with 4 sides instead of 8: Tapered Octagon Thread

Vectric has a video on how to model a spindle using the un-wrapping process. ... _Machining

I would use the cnc to do the work. Then re-mount it in the lathe for sanding. I have done this many times for rotary projects and it works really good. Of course, if you have really good lathe skills and/or a duplicator for the lathe it would be much faster to just use a lathe as long as you don't need a multi-faceted shape other than a square.
