Thanks for the replies…

“are you wanting to have the two sides painted white
and the middle stained wood ??
(how many are you going to make).
I would stain just the show sides of the center piece
and paint only the show sides of the outside pieces
leaving enough raw wood in the middle for the glue lines.”

John, Yes, two outsides painted and inside stained (same as shelf). I’m making four sets. Thanks for your suggestions.

Sand both contact surfaces with 40-60grit, exposing the wood; and use what ever glue you want.
Mask the inside exposed edges on outside corbel before sanding.
The large grit will leave enough surface area that almost any adhesive can form a strong bond, even with little paint/stain left behind.
If plan is outdoor use, the a slow cure epoxy would be my adhesive of choice.
Plus if you get a little squeeze out, the clear epoxy will be less noticeable.”

CaptainKlutz, Thanks!
