I have a table consisting of a top and a leg. But top is wobbly due to a space/gap between top and leg. What is the easiest/fastest way to fix it?
Note that there's no attachment between the top panel and the structure underneath.

Now that I understand that the top simply rests on the substructure--a very non-standard arrangement--here's my suggestion...
Avoid the whole issue by installing pads or bumpers at the outer ends of each supporting arm. These can be self-stick rubber pads or the kind of nail-on rubber bumpers used in moving assembly applications. This eliminates any need to fine-tune fitment, provides good stability, and affords some additional friction to prevent unwanted movement.
I would make two suggestions.
Properly attach the table top to the rails using table top fasteners.
If the clips aren't sufficient, plane or sand down the bowed center section of the support rails.
