I have pulled out the wobbly leg (it needs replacing anyway) and while doin g so, I noticed a hairline crack running across the square section, end gra in frame part into which the peg ,on the end of the leg, inserts. The crack runs across the socket and I would guess that a poor fit of peg in socket and the associated movement might have caused this to occur.
Before fitting a new leg (making sure a snug but not over-tight or excessiv ely loose joint is created), I need to fix the hairline crack. What I need is a very low viscosity glue that sets hard as hell and ideally, that can b e force-fed into the crack. One notion I had is to drill a tiny (1mm) hole into the crack, pry the crack open as much as I dare, without splitting the wood further, then squeeze a load of super glue into the hole. Once the gl ue is in, I would clamp the crack shut and leave to dry.
So, is the procedure described above a sensible one, or should I start with something different?
