Default Question for the metal fab guys...(building a tripod)

I'm about to start putting together a short (6'-8' range) tripod and want to keep it as light as I can, while still having sufficient strength to support my fat behind. I weight 280 lbs. + -

So my question is, would 1.5" 11ga. square tubing be stout enough? Or do I need to step up the wall thickness?

Any advice would be much appreciated!
