It appears that the legs are joined to the aprons with a bridle joint. I don’t think you’ll be able to get rid of all the racking by just making a tight connection at the apron. I think you need to tie the legs together. Perhaps you can add cross braces (on each end) under the table between the tops of the legs and then another just below but high enough that your legs won’t hit when you sit close to the table?

I wonder if the cross grain glue joint between the apron and the leg is a potential problem? If the leg and/or apron changes dimensionally due to moisture—you may get some splitting/cracking. I thought you said you glued that joint—if I read that wrong please ignore this.
