These are a really solid idea, and all these ideas in comments are great, too! I was thinking finger joints for the corners, and rabbeting in the bottom. Maybe use the same 3/8" setup to cut a 3/8" rabbet along the bottom panel edges and then cut a 3/8" groove all around the bottom to lock in the bottom panel. I also like @DavidH752's idea of runners on the sides, or maybe have grooves on the sides that slide onto runners in the larger storage cabinet. Then they could slide in & out as individual units and stack together outside of the storage unit.Just some thoughts...

Rainwater harvesting: Rain Barrel DIY
I considered that path. I chose this solution to allow for backward compatible fluorescent T8 lamps, as well. Even though I own my home, I always try to factor in resale value, and not everyone likes LED lighting.My primary requirements for the project were 1) keep the functionality exactly the same both before & after; and 2) support both legacy fluorescent and emerging LED.I really like your idea of a label for the type of lamp used. I have always simply replaced lamps with the same type, but one never knows who put the lamp in before you, and with these fluorescent fixtures supporting both T12 and T8, it makes sense to provide a message to the user about how the fixture is configured. Saves opening it up to see the actual inner workings.
Why do you need a ballast at all?Here in the UK the LED replacement tubes will run directly off our mains voltage (240v) they usually arrive with a drawing showing how they can be wired and yes they can be ran off a ballast using a special starter that basically shorts out the starter so that the voltage from the ballast is directly applied to the LED tube. However the tubes will work perfectly well without a ballast as they will run on 85-265 V AC and that is how mine are wired with 240 volts directly applied to one of the tube ends. As an early adopter the oldest ones have now been running for two years with no issues.I have taken the additional precaution of attaching a small label near the lampholders stating 'LED tubes only'You can find the LED tubes I am using here.
Maybe try rubbing the dog's nose all over the surface to even it all out? Just kidding! ;^)
