Y'all make glue squeeze out much harder than it has to be.

On small detailed items, I often use nail files...they have worked well for me. As a final check before staining/finishing, the wood can be wetted with Denatured Alcohol or Mineral Spirits to make the glue still remaining stand out. I shutter when I watch YouTube/Tv shows...where they spooge glue out of a joint, knowing it causes this very problem.
I agree. I watch some of these guys using this glue and its oozing out all over the place and I am thinking look what your doing to yourself.
I remember a shop teacher after a chess board glue up chastising me for making a mess of it. When I see them doing that I remember my foolish mistake of way to much glue.

I was glueing up box joints this past week and that is some messy work. I may go to what one of the main YouTube Box joint makers uses and that is construction adhesive.

Tiebond has a new to me glue that isn't supposed to run and it is thicker. That may be a good try. Always something to go and try and do.

I don't do box joints: (or boxes).
but, I have done many other projects that excess glue would seep
into the endgrain. ruining the stain application and final results.

if you do box joints, is it possible to do at least apply the first coat of stain
and/or clear coats on the wood first ?? then, do the cutting and glue up.
the clear would seal the wood and prevent the glue from wicking into the endgrain.
after assembly, a quick wipe with damp cloth should be all that is necessary.
just thinking out loud here for another option to deal with the messy glue issues.

[unless you are planning to ship bowling balls in your box, the parts of the joints
that are sealed will not hold glue. but, the freshly cut parts will be bare wood and
"should" be enough to hold the box together - for ever.
again - depending on what the box is designed to be used for].

.

there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.

That is my method for corners

I saw a guy use a drinking straw in the corners to get the glue out. I may try that one of these days. Glue can be your best friend and your worst enemy.

If a little is good, more is not necessarily better, often the need felt for excess glue is because of poor fitting joints so the natural reaction is to fill the gap with glue.
That strip of masking tape is to catch the small amount that will inevitably squeeze out, not half of what you applied.
