A new top
I finished installing the purfling on both the top and back, and was disgusted by what I had created. As I had mentioned before, the corners here were an experiment, and after getting the purfling in, I realized that there is no way I could be happy with the result, particularly on the top. So, I broke it against the edge of the bench, to relieve myself of the pondering how to save it, and am off to make another top. I'm still contemplating the back.
Here is the new top, planed to fit and glued with a rub joint.
