If I were going to try a glue up like that I think I would cut the strips in two different lengths and on the short ones glue some pieces of wood the same thickness to each end of the short strips so that they are the same length as the longer strips. When gluing the strips together you will have to make sure all the strips are even and that you don’t glue the on the extra pieces. once the glue up is dry you ought to be able to snap the extra pieces off since they would be glued end grain to end grain.

All said and done I think it would be easier to cut the box joints than this process.
