    I have a wooden drawer that has had the back part come off.
    In the past I have repaired many times (over say 10 years!!).
    There is a lot of glue remaining.
    Should I just file down and make smooth - keeping some of the glue?

    I thought I'd ask before getting the sander out!

    Thanks.

    Use a different repair method to all the others you have done over 10 years!
