I'm looking at different shelving options and I really like the look of this shiplap wood. I'd like to use it for shelving by connecting two of them together widthwise to make a shelf that is approximately 12" in depth. I'm unsure about this for 2 reasons:
I don't know how strong the shelf would be (my brackets will be 16" apart)
I'm not sure how I can attach the pieces together (would glue be enough?)
The entire depth of the shiplap would be supported by brackets so the joint doesn't need to be super strong.
