Why can’t you glue it? I guess i’m not understanding something.


Because most stains and paints seal the wood, preventing the glue penetration necessary for a good joint.

Big box stores literally have aisles full of various glues and adhesives that will stick to stick to paint and stain no problem. Especially something decorative like a corbel. I mean sure, if I was going to stand on it i might buy a $3 tube of 5-minute epoxy but would have no problem putting my full weight on it.
