The short grain of the handle may snap
off if the lid is dropped.

One interesting way to avoid this is by cutting
a slot in the “legs” of the handle with the
table saw and inserting splines with the
grain going the other way.

If done that way the handle might break off
at the joint if dropped. I would probably
spline it and put screws in. Mortise and tenon
would be the old school way to do it. Dowels
could be figured out too. You could glue it then
drill 1/4” holes from beneath and insert dowels
up into the handle.

Making it stronger is an interesting exercise but
if you don’t want to bother just glue is probably
