I am not quite understanding the design. Are you planning to have an apron to support the top and connect the legs? If you have even a crude drawing of what you are planning that can help quite a bit. It sounds like the shelf will sort of act like a stretcher but I could be misunderstanding.

Also note that 6 legs can be difficult to prevent rocking when on the floor. Even if you make it perfectly so the bottom of the legs are coplanar, any slight variation in the floor over the 5’ span can make it so that 2 or 3 legs are off the ground which means that it will rock. You may have to add some adjustable feet so that you can get it level and prevent rocking.
