I’d say that looks just fine BB1. Regarding sanding, the issue is that 1/2 of the joint on each face is end grain and the other 1/2 is long grain. Personally with joints like that, I sand across the grain, only at the joints, until I get everything smooth then sand it up to 320 grit. Then I go back and sand the entire thing with the grain to 220. Since the cross grain scratch marks are finer, the 220 grit typically removes them well enough. YMMV of course.
