I have seen people attempt to create joinery with a glueup. The problem is you often need waxed spacer blocks to maintain proper alignment. Then hope the block doesn’t get glued to the project. Your method of trimming the fingers to length after glueup would prevent some of that headache. I still wonder if fitting the joint would be a bear.
Have you thought of through dovetails?
