I used an older (not soft pine) 2x6 doubled on each end for mine. Raised it about 3 inches. I did the doubled 2x6 so that I could recess the bolt and washer on each leg so that the bolt was not touching the floor.

I'm not home to measure but I think I made the boards to extend out about 6 inches to the back side and about 3 inches to the front side and then beveled the front side and rounded the edges with a round over bit on the router. I did not use or see the need for a stretcher from one end to the other so that I could clean up easier.
