The Fix It Contest was no exception.
I currently line in a home that was built in 1957 (the same year I was born) and like me, some things are just getting old and having issues.
We have a very functional kitchen with lots of cabinets but occasionally a hinge here or there will become loose due to a stripped screw hole.
I am going to show you how to do a quick, easy and inexpensive fix for this problem.
Step 1: The tools and supplies
Toothpicks (round or flat) or bamboo skewers
Glue (wood glue or white glue)
The screwdriver head should match the type of screw you have (normally a flat or slotted head or a Philips head)
Step 2: First step
Step 3: Apply glue and wood
Take the hammer and TAP the toothpick/skewer into the hole. Run the utility knife blade around the protruding toothpick/skewer and snap of the excess. Tap the cut area with the hammer to make sure it is flush with the cabinet front.
