Mike, check out this video for making the side pieces. As for cutting out the interior side of the groove to make it a rabbet you can install the glass into, you can mark and use a hand saw to cut the depth and a chisel to remove the long side. Or if you have a router, then get a rabbetting bit== and it will be a super simple job to just assemble the frame and then with it laying on a table clamped down you zip the other side of the groove of. If you don’t have a router…. well…. then I think this may be the job to get one.. Perhaps the Dewalt 611 $70 more it also comes in a 2 base kit, which I have and really like for the smaller jobs when a 1/4 shank bit is okay. Good Luck

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
