Question:

woobly chair?

Where can I fix a woobly chair? I love my dining chairs, but they are all woobly.

Answer:

Step One Turn the chair or table upside down on a soft surface. Step Two Pull out the wobbly leg or arm--whatever joint has lost its grip. Step Three Sand the top of the wobbly joint with fine (220-grit) sandpaper until all the old glue is removed. Step Four Lightly sand the inside of the joint, using the fine sandpaper. Step Five Wipe away the wood dust with a tack cloth or rag. Step Six Squeeze a bit of furniture or wood glue such as Dap Swell and Lock around the inside of the hole. Step Seven Place the furniture leg or arm in the hole. Turn the leg or arm once in the joint to spread the glue evenly. Step Eight Wipe away excess glue with a damp rag. Step Nine If needed, tape the leg or arm in position with low-adhesive painter's tape (see B). This tape (available at paint and hardware stores) won't leave any residue on your furniture. Step Ten Check the chair or table regularly to make sure the leg or arm hasn't moved from its proper position. Remove the tape within 8 hours. Step Eleven Allow the furniture to dry for 24 to 48 hours before using.

You have written wrong spelling of wobbly. First understand what is wobbly. Wobbly is derived from the word wobble which, means shake or move from side to side in a way that shows poor balance. I will give you one example so that you can understand how to fix a wobbly chair. After reading these steps you will be able to fix uneven legs on a wobbly chair. 1.Start by placing the chair on a perfectly flat surface. 2.Slide a wood shim under the short leg so the the chair no longer rocks. 3.Trace the outline of the chair leg on the shim. 4.Cut the shim to size using a hole saw. 5.Attach the shim to the leg and hold it in place with a furniture glide. 6.Install glides on the other three legs.

I just fixed a wobbly stool and now it is all tight again. I used a product from the hardware store and it has a name that is something like Chair-fixer or chair-tight. It is on the glue aisle. It turned out to be a big bottle of superglue! But it worked! I used it on every leg and rung and I used up the whole bottle, but it was worth it! Just be sure to follow the directions, mainly so that you won't spill the superglue on the surrounding areas. Good luck!

You live where? Therefore: Check for businesses in the want ad section of local newspaper for carpenters or handy man. If that individual can't help you, perhaps has a suggestion. Turn chair over. Is it missing the 'taps' on bottom? That would be a do-it-yourself fix.

Take apart and reglue with yellow carpenters glue and clamp with band clamps or ratchet straps.
