I have pretty classic wood and straw chairs on the top. They dump and we can not sit on them while they are in good condition. By the way, I would like to keep them, I tried to paste them but without result it did not hold, probably not the good glue, I do not remember the name of this glue. Do I have to screw them? It seems unpleasant to me, or use another glue more powerful.
Any glue can not work if you do not tighten the parts for a minimum of 24 hours. A wood glue is needed to perform this operation.
If however the gluing still did not hold, you can screw it by creating a shoulder to drown the screw head in the wood. All you have to do is fill the hole with wood paste of the right color. You can also make a hole beforehand with a small diameter bit, then a cylindrical "well" with a wick the size of the head of the screw, finally close this hole with a piece of trunnion that you will cut and plan to give then illusion of ankle. This finish is also very decorative.
