3/16” is more like “roping” than “stringing” :-)

At the scale of those legs, that size would certainly be appropriate. The spalting on those legs makes them pretty busy, and I’d be tempted to omit the stringing altogether. If you make the stringing bold enough to stand out, it might overpower the visual texture of the maple.

Instead of adding, maybe take away? Consider routing out indents in the legs – either grooves where stringing would usually go, just no stringing, or create a recess with the stringing pattern as the outline?
