I'd run it longer

By extending the piece, below the hook on the bottom, it would have more support on the wall. The dowel idea is good, a spline might be better. Run the piece into the blade having set the fence 3/8" on center. A stopped kerf about 2" high and 7" or 8" long on the backside won't show and will add a lot of strength regardless of grain direction. I use 1/8" plywood for these sort of things. Just make sure the grain on the spline is opposite the grain on the workpiece when gluing it up.

I would not trust the wood to hold up as shown in the photo.... :thumbdown:
