No cleats should be glued across the grain.No no no!
What’s the Mc of the wood right now?
Is the slab flat now?
What’s the Rh of the environment your taking it to?
These things matter and it takes experience and luck to make the right decisions on how to store and handle the wood.
The koa I have worked was very stable but it was also dry.
15 inches is not very wide but you still need to allow the wood to shrink or expand.
Some slotted tabs in the corners of the stand and screws is one way.
Good luck.
