The corners are going to be long grain to long grain, and the glue will be plenty. You might simply want to use a rabbet-Dado joint to join the corner. Easy to make, lots of glue surface, more tolerant of a little misalignment than a lock miter. Just remember that piece y will be shorter than x so it looks even when assembled
