You will want the rails to be wider. Tenons are better. As is, it will be too wobbly. Take a look at some Krenov style sawhorses to see a good example of this type of construction:

Note how wide the lower rail is. What you would really want to do for this type of construction would be similar but finer pieces.

Takes a little longer but not that much when you factor in having to make it again when it self destructs.
