you’ll want some clamps, a good combination square, and a long straight edge/guide for the circular saw.

you can gang all those cross brackets together with some clamps, then using a straight-guide gang cut all those notches in a single cut with a circular saw to make sure they are all the same dimensions. (or use a table saw with a cross cut fence and stops).

I would also recommend getting a nice block plane and sharpening supplies to touch up and chamfer all those edges for a more refined look and smoother touch.
