It all depends on the walnut and its use. If you are using 1/4" walnut to
divide pigeon holes, a quarter inch is plenty. If its structural, you will
need 3/8", assuming your cutting them in 3/4" inch stock.

Let's see now...
One said: 1/3 of the thickness the dado is in.
One said: 1/4" or 1/2 of the thickness the dado is in.
One said: 1/2".
One asked something personal about your balls.
For me, I'd go with the 1/4" depth unless the dado is going in 1/4"
material. If so, 1/8" is adequate.
I wonder what the next four or five answers will bring.

Sound advice. Just a couple other points. For proper adhesion, the paint must
be bright yellow in color. Use some 80 grit sandpaper and sand while the paint
is still wet to fill the brad nail holes. Any leftover paint can be used as a
fine finish on your rifle or shotgun stocks.
These will be semi structural, like ply into sides of a desk(which is essentially what this project is).
I'm not sure the thickeness of the rails but the legs are like 1 5/8 thick . The rails are bigger than 3/4 for sure though. I'm afraid of cutting into my tenon on my rails.
