Wasn't for sure if you had done the legs that way or not. I have done similar but laminated a few boards then ripped the 45 and glued up again to get a solid legs with quartersawn face on all four sides. Never have tried a hollow leg.

I wasn't for sure from the first pics if it was all tigerwood, look forward to seeing the final product.

I thought about making the legs solid but this wood is so dense and heavy that I didn't think it was necessary but the inside corners of the legs are cut short so they hold all the load
