    Anyone have a minimum bonding idea for a closet shelf made with 12 mm composite panels?

    i.e.

    can it be built without glass tabbing and say just an epoxy fillet each side to save weight?

    disregard the flex of the panels they are 8x16

    I would think that an epoxy fillet on each side would be very strong - definitely no need for tabbing as well.

    I presume that you will just be storing clothes and 'bits & bobs' on the shelf, hence not a lot of load - maybe a few pounds in total?
