How to Fix a Wobbly Chair How to Fix a Wobbly Chair

What You'll Need
Sandpaper or steel wool
Elmer's Carpenter's Wood Glue
Wood clamp or tourniquet
Vinegar (if needed)

Are you tired of that chair that won't stay still? You can easily fix this annoying problem overnight, with only a few materials, and relax steadily in the morning.

Step 1: Remove all old glue from both parts to be re-glued with sandpaper or steel wool.

  • Tip: Use vinegar to soften some old glues that may be difficult to remove.

Step 2: Using Elmer's Carpenter's Wood Glue spread glue on both surfaces. You don't need a lot.

Use a wood clamp, or tourniquet to apply pressure on joint for 30 minutes. For firmest bond allow to dry overnight.
