How do I put an antique dresser back together?

I got a beautiful dresserfrom my mother law, while moving it it came unglued or whatever. It's barely hanging in there and I don't know what to do. It really means a lot to me

  • If you are not familiar with wood working, I would find a local cabinet maker or wood working handyman to come help you. A dresser is pretty straight forward in assembly, but if you don't know what you are doing, you could damage it further. Google or flip through the yellow pages.

    Hello Debi! You don't mention where the dresser came unglued. The best thing to do would be to glue it and then clamp it until the glue dries with the proper clamps--provided that no parts are broken--just loose. If you don't know how to do it maybe you know someone who can help you out! Any DIYers in your Friend list?
