Fixing a Stripped Wood Screw Hole

To fix a hole that has become too large for a wood screw take some tooth picks and wood glue and fill the hole until it is the right size again. If you decide to fill it completely you will need to pre-drill for the screw. Let the glue and the toothpicks dry completely before you finish your project.
