My parents have, or had, wooden chairs. That was a continuing
struggle for my Dad, to keep the chairs glued.
The chairs I now h ave, when they come loose I drill a 1/8 hole
from the inside of the hole out through the horizontal rod. Push
em back together, and drill a slightly smaller hole into the end
of the rod. Small dab of vaseline on the end of the rod, into the
hole to lube the threads.
Zip in a black head drywall screw. 1 5/8 inch long works nicely.
Hardly visible, unless you really know what you're looking for.
And folks who do chairs will understand.
