^[connecting 2 boards to make 1 wider board] Nonetheless, those joints will be reinforced with dowels to add more glue surface

I'd consider doing something else besides a simple "butt joint" (gluing the two ends together for the base and top), as this is the weakest type of joint.

I'm guessing aligning the dowel holes got messed up because you used a handheld drill? I'm not much of a woodworker but I've always wanted a drill press just so i can make perfectly vertical holes.

Maybe a channel along the back with clips (at the least) to keep it all nice and tidy. Heck, a breakout box at the bottom so you can plug and unplug from the base and have nothing showing (cablewise.) Way overkill, but it would fit that project nicely.
