Stripped Wood
Screw Hole Repair

Over tightening or removing
wood screws too many
times can cause stripped
wood problems.

Removing cupboard doors
for repainting can cause
the wood to fall away
and therefore the wood
screw has nothing to hold
onto.




A quick and sure way to deal
with this problem is probably
already in your cupboard.

Take some round wooden
tooth picks, place one at a
time into the screw hole
and snap them off level
with the surface, continue
until the hole is full.

The last one with a pointed
end, tap it in with a hammer,
break it off, put the screw
back in place and you are
done!

Although most times no
glue is required, in some r
really bad situations add
the glue.


Screws that are stripped will
generally not screw out in
a normal fashion.

To remove a badly stripped
screw, you will have to
help, by applying a slight
lifting pressure while
un-screwing.

Insert a flat ended screwdriver
in behind the hinge, bracket
and gently pry outward while
un-screwing.
