If you built it, you can repair it. The only question is how visible will the repair be. For advice from the peanut gallery, a picture would help.

If the wood has not actually broken or changed shape, you should be able to just sand things down to clean epoxy and put a glass cloth patch inside and out. If there actually is a break, you can either cut away the damaged wood and patch in a new piece, or you could maybe push the pieces back where they belong and glue them in place with thickened epoxy. Glass patches afterwards in all cases.

If you need more info than this, let us know.

Good luck,
