Originally it was probably bonded with contact cement and they probably did not use enough. I've seen this happen in commercial displays all the time where they are trying to save on material costs. We had several from one company starting to come apart and I contacted the manufacturer. They said they had one of those efficiency teams come in and revamp their manufacturing processes and that was one of the things they changed was the amount of contact they were using because it was a high dollar item. They remade the cabinets for that shipment and had the freight company pick up the other ones. They went back to their old building procedures because they were having to rebuild everything they sold. I hate efficiency teams, they make it real hard to produce a quality product, they know noting about manufacturing but they sure know how to crunch the number so they look like they know what they are doing. I know there are good efficiency companies that actually know what they are doing and make sure that quality is not sacrificed in the process of pinching pennies but I have always been there when the others were hired.

I would use contact to re-glue these pieces, just make sure everything is lined up before you put parts together.
