Glue Problems

Beginners sometimes are not careful with glue. They apply too much and allow the glue to dry on the surfaces near joints. If that happens, you will not be able to stain and finish that area later. Never apply too much glue.

When you work with new, raw wood, it is not a good idea to wipe away excess glue that is squeezed out of joints. Wiping tends to spread the glue and to seal the wood surface. The best removal method is to let the glue dry and then carefully trim it away with a very sharp knife or single-edge razor blade.

if excess glue does get into or on the wood near a joint, you'li find out when you apply the stain, which won't have the same color on the glued area. To correct this, you'li have to sand the area and perhaps even shave the surface carefully to get rid of the glue. When the stain takes evenly, you know that all the glue is gone. However, it is best to avoid the problem in the first place.

You can avoid many problems il you use glue carefully. Don1! apply too much, and clean away any excess before you stain Clamp the drying pieces firmly.

Once the glue has dried. sand all the pieces thoroughly. No brand of unfinished furniture comes in a condition that is ready to stain. Your sanding should be thorough
