    well it my own fault.... I didn't lock the high level swing door on one of our cupboards and when I braked hard to avoid a cat the door swung open against its hinges and pulled all the screws...Gave the dog a shock as it landed on him....

    Anybody got a recommendation for best wood filler/epoxy for filling and rescrewing the hinges? Wood depth is only 12mm

    a shaved matchstick or cocktail stick, dipped in woodglue can be pushed into the hole. when set trim the surface smooth, then refit the hinges in original position

    There was a thread on here not long ago on the very same subject and remedy :)
