Just turn another tenon if you can. Glue block would also be a good move, and you know me, I’d thread it first so I wouldn’t have to use a chuck :)

BTW: Like others here, I prefer tenons over recesses… tenons are held in compression and you can only compress wood to a point. Recesses hold under expansion, and it is possible to over expand the wood grain apart if you are not careful. I also like to keep my tailstock engaged with the piece for as long as possible for additional support on larger stuff, regardless of how it’s mounted.
