Bye Bye Wobbles!

Let's tighten up this chair!
Since we would be painting this chair it didn't matter if the wood glue dried clear or not.
Just read the bottle to match your needs.
Get it lined up nice and straight with a rubber mallet or padded hammer.

Tighten all of the screws!

Now for the best part ~ My husband took a syrenge that is used to fill ink cartridges and filled it with watered down wood glue. This has been a perfect way to get glue all the way in tight spots. Let it run in and then wipe off any excess. Apply the glue several times and keep watching for runs that you don't want on your wood.

Now clamp it all together and let it dry for at least 24 hours!
We have used this technique on several items and it works great!
