I’ve never had much luck gluing ship lap joints. I find it hard to keep everything even. I find I need to make sure everything is precise, much more than a normal glue joint. Ship lap is a joint meant to allow movement without leaving an opening. I have glued T&G, but only if the material was already T&G’ed (as in using hardwood flooring for a back panel)

And not to knock any else work, but I’ve had one panel crack bad after gluing it that I know of, and that was one I put a board screwed all the way across the glue joints. Its on a cabinet I built many years ago in my bathroom. It annoys me every time i’m in there. I knew I knew better when I did it.
