My opinion...

I would add a bead around the bottom of the apron and down the sides of the legs to soften the hard edges. This can be accomplished with either a pointed beading bit or half round bead trim.
The legs shouldn't have a taper, as they add weight to the top with the large apron. A simple bead can soften the edges, as well as add a touch of elegance to an already nice table.

Charlie, I had originally considered a long taper but that would involve an angle cut on the mortise and tenon cross pieces that I was just not sure I could do well. But then now that I think of it, you are talking about a taper toward the inside so the inside surface would remain the same as it is. I'm thinking about it again!

John, I plan to give everything a 1/8" roundover. The top pieces are already done. I wanted to wait until I had everything cut and fit before doing that. Good eye though.

Well, I determined that just about anything done to the leg that far down would likely be lost if the table sites on carpet. Doing 8 cuts on a rectangle does not look good to me or I am not doing it right.
I decided on a shallow miter cut as seen on the left.

Thanks all for your input.

I'll post here later when it is done.
