Thanks for your reply, Mr. Neul.
Yeah, I'm not a fan of the way it was made either, but it sure was tough to find queen anne legs at a decent price... maybe I just didn't know where to look?
Those notches are only 3/8" x 3/8" x 2 1/2" and milled to lousy tolerances and not providing a tight fit, even if my apron was that exact size. With that issue plus the fact that my apron is 1" thick, I've decided that the best option is to cut small blocks to actually fill those gaps back in. I'll remove the threaded inserts and fill the holes, too. Then back to plan A for with pocket holes and screws.
Many thanks! I'm learning lots already.
Making it all up as I go...
