I would agree on the spalted maple perhaps looking a bit odd at the glue lines. Is it possible to use a different wood, or non spalted maple? I’m sure you are set on it on your mind.

Whenever I come upon these situations in my head during a build, I take a step back and really think about what would look best compared to what I previously had in mind. Sometimes the original idea was best, but just takes more time to do. More often then not, I come up with a better solution that looks better in the end.

I’d say hollow legs would look the best, but you have yourself some work with mitered and tapered legs. Good luck
