Yellow Glue-titebond 11

When I glue and clamp using titebond II I wipe off the squeeze out.Later I apply some danish oil and find out some of the glue evidentaly was absorbed into the wood and not allowing the oil to penetrate.What am I missing?Tanx

Itchy,
You have to wipe off the glue with a wet sponge or rag. Wipe it several times, using a clean side of the rag/sponge. Rinse the sponge in a bucket of clean water and wipe one more time. You have to make sure you get all the excess glue and not let it soak into the wood. Check it a few minutes after clamping to see if any more glue has oozed out.

I usually let the glue set up for a little bit (become gummy) before I take a simple paint scraper and scrape it off. I do not wipe the glue at all. After the glue has completely hardened, I do a good sanding, and then the wood is ready to be finished. Iím afraid of doing just what you state, smearing the glue further into the wood and not getting it off. What a way to wreck a beautiful piece. Red

Red, Mikes way of removing the glue is the correct way. Try it some scrap pieces.

Thanx guys,I was just wiping it with a dry cloth thinking if it was wet it would dilute the glue.Looks like the rag should just be damp enough to get it. tnx

Dennis: this is a little harsh, I believe...to declare one method correct, and assume that the others are not?

I've done it both ways...I have to disagree with your assertion that Mike's way is correct. I'm having more luck lately with letting it dry and scraping gently then sanding. Have you tried to successfully, completely wipe away glue from a 3-way inside corner? It can't be done if you have fingers and thumbs....now a scraper or razor blade will fit nicely into such corners, and remove glue accordingly.

try it on some scrap pieces....

regards,
smitty

I've done both - let the squeeze-out "semi-set" and then use a chisel (which I keep for this very purpose) to lift it off. I used to use a damp rag, but find that the chisel works best for me.

Whichever method you use, they both work.

Just a thought - before applying your finish, wipe on a solvent of some kind (methyl hydrate, paint thinner, whatever you have handy that is clear) - this will show MANY imperfections in your work - including glue smudges. I use some chalk to mark the trouble areas, and when the solvent evaporates fix the problem before finishing.

Having tried many different approaches, I've found Mike's to work the best.
Hate to say it, but Norm's right again. Seems like he's always right.
