Thanks guys for taking the time to offer suggestions.
George, correct, they are not loose tenons, but loosely fitting. I think like you and others have said, gluing some strips around the tenons and then reshaping might be my best bet. For the corner braces when you say glue the sides first then add the braces, do you mean let it dry before screwing in the braces?
Considering 2-part epoxy. Does anyone have brand recommendations? Would I use the epoxy on top of shims/strips, or in lieu of, with the assumption that it will fill gaps?
Has anyone used Mohawk Epoxy Putty Sticks? I bought a stick in walnut color to use for repairing some small dings, but I'm wondering if it may actually work for this repair as well, being it's also a 2 part epoxy that can be sanded and shaped. Would this work? If I used it to reform the tenons would it create a strong joint using Titebond? Or would I apply it and mate the m&t's before it hardens?
