The sideboard was completed in two separate panels, slipped into place, and secured with a couple of nails (this is an apartment so it's easily removable). The two sections were then grouted together down the middle. Note: doing a pique assiette (broken pottery) mosaic with irregular found shards isn't easy and requires some desperate fast-paced grouting around and under odd overhangs. The little praying lady was not found on Glass Beach. At this point I have no idea where she came from, but she fit so beautifully onto the jutting plate that she got added to the sideboard.
FYI: the pie, cake and rabbit on the sideboard all come from Creative Growth—a wonderful project/gallery in Oakland where highly talented artists with mental, physical and developmental difficulties get to while away the day making wonderful things.
