Is this a dry fit or glue up?

glue … I started with frame makers super glue … after I got a solid base built up, I brad nailed each layer with Gorilla white glue..
notice the heavy chamfered edges … sorta Gothic or rustic
the pieces are cut long and are then trimmed on the bandsaw and then edge sanded flush
