After gluing up the shelf I discovered a small crack between two boards. I thought about just filling it with saw dust and wood glue but I want it to be perfect. So I decided to rip the shelf with the table saw at the crack and glue it up again. Worked like a charm!

Small crack, on the right side of the second board from the left.

After gluing and some sanding. Perfect!
