I have seen older chairs mainly, belonging to elderly people that have wire running from corner to corner between the legs and and twisted together in the middle, somehow. They used several layers of wire, and I don't know how they did it, but I have seen it, so I know it can be done. I don't know if they used any glue before hand or not. I am assuming maybe the legs of the chairs were starting to spread too far apart or something and the wire was to prevent that.

Wire won't repair a chair that is wobbly, what you need is some wood glue.

Got a picture? Worth a thousand words. It just might be easier than you think to fix.
