Instead of pocket holes...

My wife asked me to build her this as a TV stand...

I know pocket holes are rarely the best joinery option. If you were building this, what would you use? I've never really done anything outside of pocket holes or glue, but I could definitely learn!

I usually use either just glue or glue with biscuits but nothing wrong with pocket holes

I would use dadoes, rabbets, and half laps...glue and clamps, and fasteners if necessary.

How would I do dadoes and rabbits? My table saw doesn't accommodate dado blades, and that's the only way I know of.

I don't see any problem with pocket screws as long as they are hid from view.

Should I use those to join the top as well, or should that be glue?
