You could do both. Lock-rabbets reinforced with brads. Aim true, shoot straight ;)

...and have an angle grinder w/ cutoff disc handy.

So far this has been working well. I haven’t glued or nailed yet, but I was able to turn out a LOT of parts at once. Rip a couple strips of BB, dado sides of one entire strip w/ full kerf blade, rabbet the sides of another entire strip, then use a stop block on my crosscut sled set to the height of the trays.

I’m going un-’merican and using mm for the tray heights in order to have equal clearance from the above shelf & pegs regardless of height. The magic number is a multiple of 32mm, followed by +8mm. So heights are 40mm, 72mm, 104mm, etc.
