Fixing the Umbrella

By Deborah Petronio

My husband accidentally left our very expensive umbrella up during a storm. The arm that attaches the umbrella to the post was ripped off. It was a case of replace the whole umbrella for about $1000 or figure out a way to repair it ( the company didn’t sell any replacement parts). As we were contemplating what to do I was working on my artwork with some Apoxie Sculpt and thought it just might work. I applied it on pretty thick, then used my belt sander to get the thickness right and re drilled the holes. Viola! It worked great and the umbrella is fully functional. Thank you Aves for the big savings!?
