People will tell you about lots of good, standard joining methods like tenons. But, might I suggest pocket hole screws. Cuts a joint down to a couple of minutes and you move on from there.

If you are going to have a back on it simple dado joints would work.

I was hoping not to use pocket holes. Do you think tenons on the 1 inch trim pieces will be strong enough? If I use dados, what width do you recommend? The bottom shelf will be 1”, so a 1/2” dado? Will that suffice?
