Dowels to attach cross support ro trestle legs

I am considering using large 1 inch dowels glued in to attach the support beam to the legs on a large Trestle table that I am building. Will this be problematic in the sense it may interfere with wood movement and also strength? See the attached pics of drawing and mockup.
Thank you.
