How to Repair Stripped Screw Holes. GOOD ONE! This Video Addresses Stripped Screw Holes in Wood.

Like Us on Facebook! How to repair a stripped screw hole. Look we’ve all bought a crappy chipboard piece of furniture in our time that has fallen to pieces because the screw holes are so worn they no longer hold the screw, or have had an old door that is about to fall off because the screws holding up the door have been stripped out of their hole.

Stripped screw holes can be really inconvenient but the good news is that they are really easy to repair. If you’re lucky, in some cases, all you would need to do is use a longer or bigger gauge screw but if that’s not possible then watch the video to find out how to repair stripped screw holes in wood.

All you need can be found in your house, some matches, a golf tee, some timber dowel, plastic wall anchor or even some tooth picks for the smaller holes. Naturally you don’t need all these at once but pick one that suits the size of your hole to be repaired, insert it into the hole, along with some PVA (timber glue), chisel off flush with the surface, and then drive your screw in. It works like a charm.

All methods work great but if you are rehanging a heavy door or something like that l would go for the hardwood golf tee as it gives more holding power than the others mentioned.

Remember, don’t tell your mates, this is our little DIY secret.

Till next time, Uncle Knackers
