Have you ever had one of those small home repair problems, that wouldn't go away. There are quite a few cabinets in my kitchen. All are oak. Nearly all have stood up well over the years. One of the cabinet doors has been a continuing problem, the screw holding the door hinge to the oak frame keeps coming loose. This is the uppermost of two hinges. When it gets loose enough, the door sags noticeably.\n\nFor years, I've fixed it – temporarily – by filling the hole with broken off toothpicks, and driving the screw back in. This 'fix' usually lasted about 2 years. And then it came loose all over again. I can't tell you how many times I've done that, but no matter how I varied the toothpick method, it never lasted for long.\n\nThe other week, the dreaded door sagged again. This time I got some J-B Weld KwikWood epoxy putty, about $5 or 6. I had to do it twice just to get it to work once. This putty has two parts that you have to knead together to activate the epoxy chemistry. Once you do that you have about 10 minutes working time to get it in place, and then you should let it cure for an hour. The first try, I stuffed the activated putty into the screw hole, waited an hour, drilled a new hole for the screw, and reattached the door. I was in too much of a hurry. I didn't stuff the putty far enough into the existing hole, leaving a large gap deeper in the hole. Within a few hours, the screw came out and the door sagged again.\n\nThe second time around, I drilled a wider hole into the oak frame, ¼" diameter, taking care to get out all the wood debris & dust from the hole. I prepped more putty, and used a nail head to ram small bits of the putty into the hole. And, just to be sure, I let it cure overnight. This time I think it worked. It's been a week and the door hasn't sagged. Hurray for small victories!
