i have a table in which the glue joints on the large through tenons
have failed. the table is now wobbly and I would like to reglue the
failed joints. Is there a way to do this without busting the whole
will try to do this tomorrow. It is not really a tenon but the
stretchers are cut in the shape of a very large dovetail which is set
into a through socket cut into the top of leg. the whole joint is
exposed. looks quite nice but the glue eventually failed. If I could
get a glue with good viscosity to flow down into the joint, I think
that would do it. not sure what to use or how to force it in.
Yea - I have a nice brass syringe and a small set of needles. One
is 7" long and is square on the end - normally. Others are reclaimed
from my wife - large massive ones. B12 3" long into the thigh.
Vets have them for animals - they might be more willing - larger sizes
and not people sizes.

I have had some luck with the syringes too, mostly on chairs. They
make kits with a thinner glue that supposedly spreads out better
within the joint. But, I have done OK using regular carpenter's glue
BTW, the glue syringes have varying sized of needles, and don't try to
just poke it into the wood. You should work the needle into the edge
of the joint, or drill a small hole just larger than the needle.
Don't need a alcohol swab either.
No worry. My personal preferences would be to be able to embed images in
posts here, have a monitor/video card like robatoy's, and for all of us
to be on gigabit wireless.
Hmm - as long as I'm wishing, I might as well wish for some of that
magic mud, too. :)
That's why I use flickr instead of ABPW--upload once in the largest size and
flickr makes thumbnails in a variety of smaller sizes. For onesie-twosies
it's a free service. Retention is as long as flickr stays in business.
