Add runners. If you want to hide them, add a stop dado on each end of the shelf so it slides over the runners.

Gluing on runners like Don recommends would be my solution too. It’s a long grain glue joint so it’ll be strong as hell, and if you use contrasting wood, it can even be decorative.

Thanks Jonah! I like the idea of contrasting wood. I have some walnut that would look great on this.

You and I could start a club for dutch chest users with four kids. It might be a bit of niche group though.
