I have a silverware drawer that the face broke off when it was slammed shut. I'm trying to figure out the best way to re-attach it. I've tried using gorilla glue but that didn't work to well because the surfaces aren't flat (some of the fiberwood is broken). Anyone have any suggestions?

How was it originally attached? – Tester101 Oct 23 '10 at 3:22
Also, a photo might help. – Mike Powell Oct 23 '10 at 3:46

I would try some corner braces and short wood screws. You probably want to pre-drill some holes so you don't split the wood.

Used the corner brace and the drawer is good as new. Thanks! – BennyT Oct 24 '10 at 6:18
