I am trying to secure a shadow box with an
extension piece.
Do I just glue the two pieces together with
corner weld? Any suggestions?

I was thinking lag bolts and lots of them.. then I thought of very small screws....

Then I looked at the header again saw that I had stumbled on to the Grumble instead of Warped...

and figured I'd better just cough up with the sane:

Yup Corner weld, then put under weights for the night. Not a lot, but like a small box of glass.

If you can - use mending plates or even those triangle shaped V-rings for tying wire. I put them across the joint, start your screws such that as they tighten they pull the material together for a good "mate"
