    Fixing a stripped hole with a golf tee. For door hinges, remove stripped screw, fill hole with wood glue, insert golf tee and gently tap in place. Let dry. With utility knife, cut off tee so it is flush. Drill pilot hole into tee for new screw. Taadaa, now ur screw has something to hold on to.

Finally, I back the screws out, break the glue bond, scrape off the glue residue, and finish installing the hinges. —Ronald Miller, McP...
