Step 1: Clean Out the Injury
So I cleaned up the mating surfaces with a crooked knife.
Step 2: Decant Some Epoxy
Don't ever use "Five Minute" epoxy for anything. It's unpatriotic, not waterproof, poisonous, bad tasting, and makes girls hate you. Avoid polyester resin also. It's not a good adhesive for most woods. This is mahogany, which means it's reddish and no one knows what species it really is, so stick with epoxy.
