Stripped Screw Holes / Wood

Hey everyone. I知 looking to see what you do to fix stripped screw holes in wood, especially on cabinet door hinges. I知 experiencing this problem in several spots.

Most fixes I see on the web involve toothpicks and glue, but I suspect the handy people on this forum may have other solutions. Anything I can squeeze out of a tube for this?

You might want try J-B Weld. They make a product that works with wood.

X2 on J-B weld. I used it on a split wood arm on an Adirondack chair. It worked fantastic.

I just had my lower bathroom cabinet come loose and I just used some slightly larger brass screws I had laying around.

In the house I drill it out to 3/8" of a hole and glue in a dowel. The toothpick thing never really worked for me.

If all else fails glue a piece of wood behind the stripped out hole area and use longer screws. I .have even used bolts with a big washer on the back side if I can't get a block there or don't want to use a block

I've successfully used the 'toothpick' method in the TT and the sticks and bricks for stripped screw holes.

We usually have toothpicks on hand so it's a fast, cheap, and easy method. The DW appreciates that rather than an entry on the 'to do' list.

I always use the toothpick method. Put in wood putty, JB-Weld or other "glue." Let dry if you can. Once dried, with toothpick, you have a solid connection. In large holes use multiple toothpicks. Works for me every time.

Your futuristic vehicle (2103) helps, no doubt.

stripped hole

Take a little piece of steel wool , roll between you fingers make it like a rope and push into hole with an awl or finish nail. Then install your screw, worked good for me !

I would just break the sharp end off a toothpick, coat it with wood glue, push and break off. Start over with the screw.
