Might drill through and use machine screws and nuts/washers. Would be much stronger

JB Weld the stuff cures hard.
Fill the hole, let JB cure, drill and screw.

One of the better ways I've discovered is drill the holes clean the same size, fill with epoxy putty and re-drill a pilot hole the proper size for the screw. Failure to use a pilot hole contributes heavily to weakness of the connection.

Prefer the toothpick method in wood and mollies in drywall.

I would drill and glue in dowels. Cut off, sand smooth. Pre drill and insert screws.
