This company, I’ve noticed, uses a lot of glueups in their furniture. This photo is a good example: https://www.facebook.com/customcottage/photos/a.543372639029058.125188.455789387787384/1249475361752112/?type=3&theater
I really like their furniture and I’d like to get more experience with that style. Is there a name for that technique? I’ve looked around online and can’t really find any plans or instructions for building furniture like that.

Danger, welcome to LJs! I am one of perhaps only 10 people on the planet that don’t subscribe to FB so I am not really able to see exactly what you want. You might search mission style furniture projects here on LJs to see if there is anything you like and I will try to answer your questions. Also, please try to make your questions as specific as possible, e.g. I don’t know what technique you are referencing, edge gluing?

Yeah, looks like a prime click count trick. All of that furniture looked rushed and a little tacky.

No, it’s not spam. That photo should load even if you’re not logged into FB. I logged out and the photo loaded for me still. Anyway…

I don’t know how to describe it. It’s kind of like a glue-thru. To verbalize it the best way I know how, the main supports are three boards thick (they look like 3/4” thick each), but the intersecting supports are glued into the middle of the perpendicular support. I don’t really know how else to describe it. Also, when flat pieces meet the supports, they’re glued into the support as well.

I uploaded a new picture, this link should work for everyone. I would like to learn and utilize this technique, but I don’t know how to even find plans for it.

Danger, I think I understand your question now. Based on the pic I think the two sides float with the seasonal wood movement. Rotate the top 90* so its grain is going the same way as the shelves grain and you should be all set. The sides of the shelves will be glued to the uprights. HTH

Yes, the glueup forms a mortise. The rail is essentially a bare-faced tenon. It saves you from having to cut a traditional mortise and tenon joint.

If you like that type of construction, check out Woodsmith Shop TV show. They use that sort of technique all the time.
