Fix Table Leg

Drill out the old broken wooden pegs that are in the table and the leg.

Fix Table Leg

Use a coping saw, cut two new pegs out of a dowel.

Fix Table Leg

Before doing any gluing, place the leg back on the table insuring that the dowels are the proper size and the table and leg align correctly.

I used liquid nail to attach the leg to the table. Place some liquid nail in the holes in the leg and insert dowel pegs into the glued holes.

Fix Table Leg

Put some liquid glue in the holes on the table. Align the dowel pegs on the leg with the glued holes on the table and press the leg firmly against the table.

When the joint is closed, if you can, use a clamp to hold the leg to the table.
