Thanks for the input Thalweg, much appreciated.

I am afraid of that weak point too. Shooting from the hip, I feel like if there were two honkin #12 screws that went through even the two 1×3s, it might be enough to tighten everything together.

I was also thinking if I rotated the 1×3s in relation to the 4×4, so that the through 1×3 would go through both halves of that lap joint? Would that make it stronger?
