Nope, if they re butted up against one another, it ll still be a problem when moisture increases and they widen. When they dry and shrink, there will be gaps.

That’s what I figured and was afraid of despite reducing width.

Just be sure not to glue them to the apron across their width.

As in don’t glue face grain to edge grain because it will inherently restrict movement? So just nails (not screws because of shearing issues)?
