    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.

DIY Tip of the Day: Quick Fix for Loose Door Screws. If a loose screw doesn’t get a grip, try my grandfather's solution. Fill the hole with steel wool, short length of plumbing solder, or wooden match (noncombustible end). Then reinstall the screw. To fill larger holes, insert a wooden golf tee, then cut it off flush. Drill a centering hole and replace the screw. Don't use glue - the screw might never come out again!

I build quite a few wall clocks and other pieces that need smaller hinges, and it’s always a challenge to align the door or lid perfectly with the box. For foolproof alignment, I apply a dab of hotmelt glue to the hinges using the technique shown at right. After just a few seconds, I can safely open the door, drill pilot holes, and install a couple of screws. Finally, I back the screws out, break the glue bond, scrape off the glue residue, and finish installing the hinges. —Ronald Miller, McP...
