Broken Brick Planter Fix

Ruffmike's picture

A friend of mine ran into his 2' square 3' tall brick planter/ lamp base and has asked me to put it together again.


 It broke (and fell over) in two places with most bricks remaining assembled, no damage to electrical.


 Is it crazy to consider just removing grout at broken areas only, and reassembling it with new grout ? Will it hold ? Maybe some Gorrilla glue where grout still is in place ?


 Trying to help him out without making it too much work for me. ; ^ )

Maybe the sanded grey morter repair "caulk" in a tube?  In addition to the gorilla glue?  I'd try it.


Forrest - maybe glue a 2" piece of Trex to it

You sure?


Wouldn't 2-1'' pcs be more appealing?

Hey it worked I glued the biggest base part with gorrilla and it held fine, but had to strip the rest and mortar it in. Too much of a puzzle.
