A hardwood bookshelf that I built for a friend. The front supports are connected to the main shelves by box joints that are held in by friction. The Back supports are connected to the main shelves by hand tightened bolts. The Bookshelves are easily disassembled, and assembly takes less than three minutes. I could also climb on the bookshelves if need be; a little creaky but the shelves definitely hold my 180 pounds.

Nice design, is that purple heart you used for the supports?
