Numerar joint, cant use Buscuit

I need to butt two numerar chunks together in an L-shape, but I dont have a buscuit joiner or the cash to buy one (no rentals either...)

What do you think my options are?...

I have old counters with cornerblocks so I'm not using the ikea L brackets, instead I've got a bunch of washers and these (see below). Hard to get a screwdriver or drill back where I need to put them, so I can ratchet these in quite easily. Think those will be able to hold the joint with maybe some silicone hidden in the crack?

Re: Numerar joint, cant use Buscuit

I wouldn't try to join them together that way, but just attach them to the cabinets per instructions, as close together as possible. Use IKEA's joining strips to minimize the gap both aesthetically and from a sanitation standpoint.
