I like to use real mortise and tenon joints. The minimum equipment needed is a benchtop mortiser and basic dado blade for your tablesaw. You will use the dado blade for rabbets, dados, and grooves anyways so it is a good starting point.
Otherwise you could get a plunge router with edge guide, and make loose tenons to fit. Every shop need a router, so I don’t see how you could go wrong.
