I’m a bit confused that you say the plans call for 2-1/2” legs. Usually on Morris chairs, the legs are considerably larger than that, with beefy tenons showing through the arm rest. You might need to post something about the plans you’re using. It sounds more like a dining chair than an easy chair to me. If you do need 4” square legs, just glue them up out of your very nice stock and let the good/solid side show on the front, or use rhett’s 4-side quartersawn solution, or use a lock-miter or splined miter, etc. Schroeder made some very nice Morris chairs he has a great “cheat”.
