Jason, I have always done it like Dave describes except I have never had to drill over sized holes, although doing so is probably a pretty good idea. Nails tent to give to allow for movement.

If your hanging the till by screwing threw the back, and you’re worried about weight (probably not an issue for a saw till)run a cleat across to spread the load. Don’t glue it or fasten it in any way other than the screws to hold it to the wall.

Doing a dado as you described would essentially be the same thing, except the board on the back wouldn’t be as strong, but it also wouldn’t be visible, so it has its benefits. I’m a little confused where that board would be in relationship to the back panel, so if its behind it, just make sure you don’t glue it to the back panel and it should be good. I think you were on the right track (assuming I truly understand what you were going to do).
