Can you help me with my computer desks?
I teach in the computer lab at our school. Four years ago we got new desks and now they are falling apart. They are pressed wood covered in something like laminate. No new furniture will be purchased for many years so I am trying to come up with a solution to fix these.
The screws are falling out. The only thing that I have thought of is to get right angle braces and run the screws all the way through with a nut on the other side. Someone told me that if I did not have the right drill bit, that the pressed wood would fall apart where I drill. Also, the laminate would crack. I think I have heard that if you drill through duck tape that it would keep the laminate from cracking, but I do not know if this is true or not.
Can someone tell me the best way to do this, or if there is another solution, I would like to know that.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me!
