A stripped out screw can be easily fixed with a match stick and wood glue.

Stripped Out Screw Fix

A stripped out screw hole in wood is easily fixed by inserting a piece of wood into the screw hole, along with a little bit of white glue to prepare the hole for the screw.

This fix can save you time and money by avoiding replacement of whole sections of wood in cabinets, door facings and furniture. This DIY fix takes only a few minutes and the repair will be stronger than the original fastening screw.
