After a little tweaking of the mortise, the first leg went in. You can see a gap at the shoulder (it’s about 1/16″ now). That’s actually what’s left of the rough underside of the top. I’ll take down the middle hump on the underside and it should close right back up.
Assuming, that is, I can get the leg out of the mortise.
