I have an Ikea chair that broke – one of the wooden pegs connecting the leg to seat split in half & is still wedged in the hole. How do I repair this?

From your description it sounds as though a dowel broke off.

To fix this, get an electric drill and simply drill a new hole (the same diameter as the original hole) right through the broken dowel.

Then use a new dowel. Coat the new dowel with a thin layer of wood glue and insert into the new hole.
