I’m also concerned that the end grain glue joints are going to be pretty weak. It’ll be a pain to cut so many slots in the ends, especially with the angle, but a spline would help strengthen the glue joints. Splines will also aid in getting and keeping everything aligned as you glue and clamp.

+1 on using liquid hide glue or another formulated for long open time to facilitate gluing so many joints at once.
