Remove the rung and saw a slot in its end no deeper than the depth of the hole into which it will be inserted. Insert a wedge cut to the same length that projects approximately 6mm from the end. Before refitting the rung, scrape off all old glue from the rung and from the hole into which it fits. Apply new glue to both the rung and the hole and hammer the chair leg on to the rung, using a block of wood to avoid damage to the leg’s surface. The wedge will force the rung open as it is driven into the hole.
