On one of my previous projects for our daughter, the base kinda sorta broke off the side table. I made a new base for the table and told my daughter the broken piece probably couldn’t be salvaged. Unbeknownst to her, I took that piece out of the firewood pile, glued it, put agate rocks over the cracks where it had broken, and covered the whole thing again in the epoxy glaze (two coats). The pole is a dowel I cut to length and tenoned into the top of the base prior to applying the glaze coats. She calls it “Joy” because the rock configuration looks like a stick figure jumping for joy.

Comments welcome.
Thanks for looking.

Yes, she really does like it. It’s one of those things I keep doing for family gifts that surprise them year after year (they never know what they are going to get). Keeps things interesting, to say the least.

Thanks for the feedback.
