We got a table that freinds were getting rid of that the legs broke off
from. It is a dense light color wood that looks like butcher block. Some
of the legs still have embedded some metal with a hex shaped opening that is
a receptacle for some screws, both of which are missing a few. I don't know
what was in their heads, but it looked like they tried to glue some of the
legs onto the frame with polyurethane foam insulation type stuff, which
seems to be coming off easily. Was wondering, if we could find more of the
metal hex receptacles, would it be better to secure them with wood glue or
liquid nails or something else? Hubby's talking replacing some of the
hardware with t nuts.
The old connectors may be those commonly
used by Ikea and other sources of build-it-yourself
furniture. Ikea also sells extra assembly hardware.

Our Home Depot carries many of these hardware bits in their nuts/bolts/washers
Called "knockdown hardware".
Watch out for threading. I think the Ikea stuff is metric. I'm pretty
sure the HD stuff isn't.
