Though the Wonderlokking website may be difficult to find, Wonderlok Chair glue (thankfully) isn’t. These little tubes of chair glue are pretty unassuming, but the big fixing power of its formula is a great weapon to have at hand.
Wonderlok is what it is because of how it works. It’s not the strongest glue ever made to fix a piece of wooden furniture, but it’s preferred by craftsman because of its “ooze” factor. Wonderlok’s great because you can apply it from the outside of a joint seam and it will penetrate (“ooze”) into the joint to form a solid bond throughout — which’ll hopefully hold your rickety chair or table firm without disassembly.
That’s not bad for a $4 tube of glue. You can go from wobbly to fixed without anyone knowing — or seeing a bead of glue — in about 2 minutes.
