Removing a hex screw with a stripped head.

I need to get a screw/bolt out of an oak bed to take it apart. The problem is the hex screw head is stripped. The person who put it together made it extremely tight and then I ruined it by trying to remove it.

What do I do now? I read somewhere the you could solder something in there to make the opening smaller again but this is a wood bed so that probably wouldn't be a good idea.

I do need the screw once it comes out so I can't do anything too destructive.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
