+1 Rich’s screw extractor solution from Woodcraft. Especially for broken screw in side of board like one shown.

Hate using solid brass screws in hardwood. I replace all brass screws that come with small hardware with brass plated steel screws. You can still break heads off if you try hard, but they have a much more predictable break point .vs. fragile solid brass screws.

Best Luck.
