A few steps forward and a major screwup on the hall table - I was able to taper the legs and create the slots for the wedges on the tenons. The I had the simple task of rounding over the legs on one side. Tragedy struck as the guide bearing on the roundover bit decided to fly off, thereby completely gouging the leg. The only piece of luck was that it happened at the bottom of the leg, which meant I was able to sand most of it out.
And ah yes, sanding - too much of it. Why doesn't wood just sand itself?
