I'm assuming 1.5" is the outer dimension, so the 2x2s (1.5x1.5s, actually) would have to be shaved down a little to slip fit.
The channel could be botled to one leg, and the other could slip in and have a pin or a hand-tightening bolt. 12" of channel should be more than enough, each section slipping into ~6" of the channel. Would need 72" total.
All that sounds better than hinges and latches...
I hope I'm wrong but I have a feeling this is going to be problematic. To get this to work well you need a snug fit and well, wood shrinks and twists and also swells when it gets wet or even damp.
But you guys keep going! Lots of people waiting to see how it goes.
