I have not had much shop time but I have glued up and pegged the legs. The pegs worked well and the joint as very tight. But I do have some questions on the stretcher, currently I have the two stretchers at 2 5/8” Wide x 3” High x 48” Long. My question that size (2 5/8” x 3”) sufficient to hold the following:

Would it be better to use planks that are 1.5” thick or 3/4” plywood?
Also I had to get my lumber pile out of the family room floor, so I finally installed at a lumber rack.
