Can you screw into wood filler?

Wood filler alone may not fill the entire depth of the screw holes. I would use a piece of dowel, toothpicks, or a carved piece of wood covered in wood glue and fitted tightly into the holes. Using the wood and glue method will give you a nice dense fill so the new screw will not split the remaining original casing.

What is the strongest glue for wood repair?

The Best Glue for Furniture Repair

  1. PVA Glue. PVA glue, also known as “aliphatic resins”, is great for wood-to-wood bonding, but it is not very effective in attaching nonporous materials.
  2. Polyurethane Glue. Some would argue that polyurethane glue is the best wood glue since it is waterproof, accepts wood stains, and sands well in thin coatings.
  3. Hide Glues.
