Tape and finish are good methods for squeeze out. As a matter of fact, my workbench is topped off with finished bamboo flooring and nothing sticks to it. Glue, paint and stain all peel off when dry. A sharp straight edge is all I need.
If your asking how to apply the glue you will get different answers that are all correct. As midlandbob stated, glue on the end grain is wasted, but I let a drop of glue on between the pins and tails and spread it on the sides of these with a small artist paint brush.
Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.
