I cut the slots first on a wide board, then cut it to size afterwards. In that way I was assured that the lefts and rights line up.

I made several holders in a morning and had them filled in the afternoon.

Strong and light, but not perfectly corrosion resistant. The zinc plating is a bit thin, But I only see small spots of rust. But this is much more rugged than the plastic trays out there.
