What can I use then? Besides sanding away 3 layers of poly? Lol. Is there another glue that I could use? Along with nails.

They are just vertical supports? Nails and Gorilla glue or epoxy---Gorilla glue foams up so clamp and wipe carefully if you use it--ugly color--

There is no back on the shelf. I would sand any poly off the back edge of the shelves you want to reinforce and glue/nail 1x2's along the back edge. You could also rabbet the 1x2's so they don't protrude so far back there.

Or, you could just add a back and nail through it into the shelves.

Run painters tape above and below where shelf will go, the the glue gets on this and you peel it off

I'm going to add a back so I'll likely just do that.
