We built this bookshelf using no glue or fasteners of any kind and only a jigsaw. It has a narrow profile and holds a lot of books. I originally intended to use some glue to hold it together, but it fit together so tightly, I skipped it. It is holding up well so far…the boards haven’t moved. If you would like to see the Sketchup plans, I will post them along with the video soon. This is my first time using Sketchup, and I drew the plan after the fact, so be aware of that. Here is the video with more information.
