I bought a second hand lovely pine dining table with extensions on either side but it’s not very sturdy and would appreciate your expertise in fixing it! I have no knowledge of carpentry but i’m pretty good with my hands and also good at following directions!
The legs of the table are screwed on with a single screw for each. See here
The legs are not very stable and I think that part of the problem is because the side planks have unglued a bit from the table top. See here
The two holes on the side plank is where the extension fits in. See here
In addition, when the extensions are on they bend slightly downwards. Here’s an image of the underside of the table
Do you think that a good quality wood glue used to secure the side planks to the top surface would do the trick? If so, how can I do this and what tools would i need?
