The glue will hold the bottom cover of the book in place, and the screws hold the pages together. Put the stack of books on top of the whole deal and wait overnight.

question, would it be more stable if you used two L brackets? maybe i dont know enough about it, but it seems a little bit unstable this way.
I guess but you would have to use drywall hangers in that case as studs are 16" apart.
How much weight can this hold?

I would also screw in the bracket.

Any reason you've used only one L-bracket? My instinct would be to use two.

Could you use epoxy if you're too lazy to find the elmers glue?

have you tried hot glue? or are you using the glue to soak into the paper more?
dorxincandeland (author)  mahbooty8 years ago
hot glue would probably work better. I don't have a glue gun, and I'm cheap.
elmers glue is actually pretty strong, it should be fine, and yeah very cheap. I think hot glue has just as much chance of ripping away from the paper

is the bracket supposed to be screwed in at this point?
dorxincandeland (author)  thecosas8 years ago
it is, it's just a bad picture. You can almost see the screw in the last hole there.
