Determine the fillet radius r and add 2*r thickness in all directions to 
the parts mentioned below.

Union two "plates" defined as cubes. One for the "horizontal plate" and 
one for the "vertical". No holes or cutouts at this stage, but add 2*r 
to all directions so we can "machine" away a thickness of r on all sides 
later and obtain the correct dimensions.

Create a cube enclosing the unioned parts 100% and subtract the unioned 
parts from it. You now have a cube with an internal void shaped by your 
object. Run minkowski() on that using a sphere with the required fillet 
radius. Subtract the result of minkowski() from your original union. Now 
you have two parts with a fillet with given radius between them.

Punch the holes as required.
