Ok, now that the chair's all glued up and we've taken the clamps off and we're going to reattach these little supports on the side. Let's find a hole and line it up. Now, sometimes these screws will be worn and if the screw seems to be sliding in the hole and not holding, what you can do is take a little piece of a toothpick and put it in the hole.
