Sure why not sounds like fun to me. Ive done a few shelves with sliding dts. I put the dt on the end grain not the long grain side. The way you have your board sitting expansion will be left to right. If you use the end grain it will be front to back.
They are fun to make but beware they can be fussy either way you choose:)

Good Luck
