You can still use the pin method for the "up the sides" sections. You just can't put a pin near the bottom joint, but about 8 to 10 inches up from the joint you can start using pins.

I add a solid piece to the top, routing out the hole if it is needed. The best way for me to decide is once the unit is built with the internal baffles, has been allowed to cure for 24 hours, I fill it up with water and inspect it closely for swelling. If the unit gives too much, I add the top piece. Usually, in cases where the vertical height is pretty tall (20" or more), I add it.
