Help with Mortise Strip for Coffee table

I am making a coffee table that will have slats for the side. What is the best way to make this mortise strip so they are identical. The top strip obviously has to match the bottom. Thanks in advance!

I think I figured something out. Would this work: setting a a jig like a box joint jig. Using a 3/8" key set 5/8" away from the dado set. The "key" would be removable so the first cut will be set with a stop block at 6 1/8"

make the strip twice as wide + table saw blade width and then just rip it down the center.
