tool or bit that will help clean out hole in chair


I have a chair that needs repaired,the back fell off and i can see that it was held together by a couple of wooden joint pieces.I need to find a good tool that will help me take out the wooden joints and clean the hole completly so i can buy more and put them in the holes.

Thx

You will need to use a biscuit joiner then. The original biscuits are glued into the slot and cutting them out will be the only method of removal.

I had this problem once, I put a fine, chisel edge on a nut-pick and it worked out well.
It picked out the glue, and the curve chiseled it down to wood again.
