Remove that side piece and the jars so that just the bottom piece remains
Step 4: Add Glue
Add a liberal amount of glue to the side of the bottom piece under where the side piece was
Step 5: Place First Side
Replace the jars and firmly place the side piece into place, still allowing for part of the side piece to be hanging over the side.
