Use Trim Screws

Got a chair with a wobbly leg? This usually happens because the glue holdingthe legs and stretchers together no longer holds. The best fix is totake the chair apart and glue it back together, but thats a lot of work.If its an old chair and theres nothing particularly special about it, you can fixit with trim head screws. Just drill pilot holes and toe-screw into the loosejoints. Be sure to drive the screws in from the bottom so you wont see themwhen the chair is upright. If a joint is really loose, you might need to force someepoxy into it to fill the gaps and make the joint stronger.
