The proper way is to angle at 45, run the dow ALL of the way through, and use a ton of glue. I learned this on the third try, but this one was made of pine scrap. This way the weight of the boards actually makes the connection stronger, rather than stressing on a screw in the back.
Well however my step-dad constructed mine, it has held up for about 2 years now and from the picture, you can see what it can hold. Also, it holds snowboards.
