Up side down, the apron and the tops of the legs will all be in the same plane. No need to check for flatness.

Tony, that's pretty funny about your upside down comment. I never thought of it that way, about upside down glue-up automatically making the top flat

I made a small table a few years ago, and I glued together the legs and apron upside down too. It was easier, and I don't remember if I gave any thought to this helping to ensure the top would be flat. It just seemed to be the "right way" to do it.

To add: I like to make simple jigs for the legs so when I'm assembling up side down the legs (the part that will contact to floor) stay perfectly spaced and square. Just less fooling around while the glue is wet.
