Reinstalling marble shower shelf Login/Join

One of our shower shelves has been coming detached. Apparently, the vendor we used didn't measure as good as he should have and skimped on the adhesive.

Now, I'm trying to figure out how to hold an approximately 3 pound piece of marble up while the epoxy dries. The quick-drying stuff doesn't work.

Short spring loaded rods was suggested but I don't think they'll hold up in a corner...

Without seeing it, Possibly a load bar that is used by semi drivers? A rigged up Carpet stretcher?

An adjustable painters handle that is long enough to go from the opposite corner to the piece at a 45 degree or so angle that you can wedge against it while the adhesive dries. Is the material that you are adhering it to stable (dry/strong)?

Yes, it's dry and strong...althought I'll have to scrape away any remaining epoxy.

Maybe i'm missing something but what about cutting a piece of wood and shimming it in place until your adhesive cures?
