Hi I'm Don Golden with Expert Village and we are going to fix a table leg for a desk. I'm going to show you the tools we are going to need right now and how we are going to use them. Now the problem we had that I talked about was that this was completely stripped, the wood is stripped out here so the screw, the double sided screw here that holds the leg to the desk doesn't hold, it just completely comes in and out. This needs to screw in there and e as tight as it can be and the only way to deal with this is to drill it out, put a dowel in there and then glue it and then redrill it and remount this double sided metal screw. You are going to need a drill with a half inch bit because we have got a half inch dowel. You are going to need some glue, you are going to need a level and you are going to need a little hand eye coordination to get this done but trust me it is not going to be that difficult. I am going to show you a few tricks that is going to make it easy and it is going to save you some money. You are not going to have to go out and buy that new desk.
