Do you have a chair that squeaks? Do you sit in it expecting to have a good and relaxing time but with your every move it does a loud and gruesome SQUEAK. Tired of your wooden chair squeaking? Well, continue right along and read my fast fix project. This is a guide to repair a wood dining chair that is awfully squeaky. One of the legs has become squeaky due to loose dowels and screws within it. I will be providing you with my method, tools, and photos throughout the repair so that you too can rid your chair of its terrible squeaks.

  1. Examine chair to find source of squeaking. It can be from the legs, back, or the seat.

You can grab each leg with your hand(s) and move it around to see if you can find the squeak. Another way you can check for squeaks is by sitting in the chair and wiggling to locate the squeak.
