I own a rocking chair that creeks when rocking. The arms will lift up but easily go back in place. Should I apply glue to the joints? It's a unique looking rocker.

Yes,glue, not one of those arthritis rubs. Rock On!

What type of glue do you recommend?

Ace Hardware sells a glue just for chair joints. It's some kind of CA as far as I can tell. FIL has some inexpensive Windsor dining chairs that were falling apart. Fixed them with this glue three years ago, and they are still tight.

That suggestion sounds good ,especially if it can be used over old glue. It's discouraging to have to do a lot of disassembly to reglue such a small issue.
