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?

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!
