I’ve always wanted to experiment with the sliding DTs but always been scared. I’ve made plenty of shelving units and other cabinets with shelves and have done dados with glue and brads and have never had any come apart. But i’ll usually add a stretcher as mentioned or something else that will prevent racking depending on what will be seen etc, could even be corner blocks. If/when I decide to try sliding DTs it will be on pine, cheaper mistakes and more forgiving.
